Fluid has been inspected and looks brand new, clear red no burnt smell. No history on the filter, it will be the next maintenance item.

I think I have determined it is not the shift solenoid though, the issue only happens when the speedometer flutters. Starting from a stop the speedo doesn't always react at the same speed as the car, occasionally it will not react until 10-15 miles an hour and then it jumps up and the transmission will get "confused". Once above 20 it operates normally, issue only seems to present itself if I try and take off too quickly from a stop. If I ease into it when under 20 mph it does not happen. This leads me to believe it is the output speed sensor, which is on the list to be replaced.

Outside of that circumstance the transmission behaves normally with no faults. I have had the issue randomly as long as I have owned the car, little over a year now.
rockandroller and chuzz like this.
