I own a 2013 Dodge Dart rallye 1.4 litre turbo, automatic transmission, today I got in and started it and the service transmission message came up, I drove it about 5 miles and shut it off and let it sit a couple hours, then drove it back and it drove just fine, what can the problem be?
My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
This may mean many different things ranging from just a basic service interval notification to other more severe transmission component failures. Generally, if there is something seriously wrong, you may get a more severe warning indicating to shut the engine down or urgent service is needed. Based upon the mileage of your vehicle, this is likely a basic transmission service interval notification. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to service your transmission.
