I have been having shifting issues with my 1999 CL for some time now. It seems as if the transmission is not being "told" when to shift. It will over rev and be hesitant to shift between gears. It also, when you go from park to drive will hesitate a couple seconds before it actually goes into gear. Can anyone help? Sometimes it drives fine...sometimes it barely moves. The only code that's being thown currently is for the charging system. A friend told me that the alternator could be bad and not putting enough charge to the system which would mess up the selenoids? Doesn't sound right to me....

PLEASE HELP!!!

If your charging system isn't up to full strength it could keep your solenoids from operating properly and that would cause the transmission to not function properly.
Pull the lockup solenoids off and check the screens to see if they are clogged. If the screens are clogged then change the transmission fluid also.

My 99 3.0CL started doing that and it progressively got worse. About 6 months after I started, I got stranded on the side of the highway since none of the gears would engage and I couldn't move, it was like being in neutral. I had to replace the transmission.
