    Mine has been doing the same thing, its seems to be doing more often the more time passes. I've been thinking about changing the fluid over to synthetic to see if that helps. My Fluid has about 25k on it, so Im just about do for a change.

    It's easy. Do some searching around here on the forum and you'll find step-by-step instructions. If you have trouble finding it, post again and I/we will help you.
