    Does the car feel like it has significantly less power than normal?
    The more you get in the gas, the slower it goes and the later it shifts?

    Possible clogged cat. Often mistaken for trans problem.

    That's different. Check codes.

    If you have Service Transmission message, there's a code set. It's usually not good.

    Now that I think about it, I've never seen a Service Trans message in one of these cars.
    Does it come on with a trans fault or when fluid life hits zero?

    It happens when some of the trans codes are set, for example, P1811 - Maximum adapt and long shift.

    I've seen & done trans work on many of these cars and have never seen that message.
