I have had all the problems listed in this forum. Now my transmission moves out of second gear to third without spending any time in second gear. I would say It slips out os second to third gear. I noticed the special button for snow driving stays on and will not go off. Does anyone have suggestions before I make a costly and futile trip to the dealer?

are there any warning lights on,the snowflake doesnt turn off when you press it.Could be a bad transmission,bad tranny control module.

no warning lights and it runs fine otherwise. I did notice that the engine maybe misfiring. Could that affect the move from second to third so drastically?

i dont think a misfire would effect that.maybe a bad torque convertor.how many miles on your car
