Tranmission slipping possibly???

So I just noticed a few times while driving my car will shift into second roughly, and sometimes when I'm cruising at steady speeds, using enough throttle to maintain that constant speed, my car feels like it shifting gears(jolt) for no reason. I want to check my trans fluid but don't know where to look. Will this be covered under my 5yr/100,000ml warranty? I have an auto 6.

There's no dipstick for the tranny. You have to remove the fill plug and the fluid should be topped off until it flows over the edge of the hole.

However, unless you can see leakage, it's highly unlikely that your tranny is low on fluid, unless you're not the first owner and don't know what bubba might have done to the car.

Well this should be covered under 5yr/100ml power train warranty correct?!

I guess so, assuming you have an actual problem. Cruising in 2nd gear? I think that would be hard to do (how slow do you have to go to stay in 2nd?), and the tranny may be hunting for the right gear.

How does it shift under continuous acceleration?

I said it goes into second hard. It slips outta gear when I'm in 4th going like 35mph steadily
