Bob, how fast is the engine running when this happens. I wouldn't think that the idle would be high enough the computer to stop the transmission from going into gear but I haven't tried it.

I have had a similar occurance on a few occasions, but the idle was not very high; only 800-900 RPM's. It happens when I put it into reverse to back out of the garage. It does go into gear, but very, very softly, almost imperceptably so. When I give it some gas, it is somewhat sluggish for a second or two, then seems to fully engage and work properly from then on. Again, this has happened only about 3-4 times over the last couple of months. I haven't gone to the dealer with it because I doubt I could get it to do it "on command", if you get my drift. I really don't want them to keep it for a few days to try to repeat the action. I only have about 11,000 miles on it, but maybe I'll do a fluid & filter change to see if that helps. I'll probably go with the synthetic when I do.
