^^ At lunch today, driving about 15 minutes light came on, had lunch, maybe 40 minutes, drove back to work, light did not come back on. I am almost willing to bet on the way home it comes back on again.

I don't think the problem is something I can recreate at will, however, this weekend I will stop by advanced auto and see if any codes are stored, you just never know.

Will post back up this weekend.

I have yet to feel any maladies with the 4eat, drives as it should, no bucking, slipping, sluggishness of any kind that I can tell.

I am not worried per say that I will get stuck or something, but just hope there is not an issue that is causing harm to the tranny of any kind.

Here's the kicker, I called up my local suby dealership, whom in the past I have had good success with, they tell me $115 to diagnose, I tell him, car only has 42K give or take and is only 4 years old, I also said the powertrain warranty is still in effect, he admits that he knows it's a tranny related issue or problem, I say good no problem, he says yep, $115 to diagnose first. I was like WTF........

So, I will have to call 1 or 2 others and see what they say, not gonna pay $115 to find out the work that needs to be done, if any, is covered under warranty.

Boy have things changed.

ps - I know what an ecu is, but never heard of a tcu, is that a transmission control unit??? Just guessing?

pss - I found this cool pdf of the 4eat, it's a good read but not sure it helps me in anyway
