I have had my 2006 Spectra for three years now. The transmission has been flushed once since I have owned it and the fluids are at the right level.
This is what happens:
I get in my car and it runs normal, shifting from 1st to 2nd and so on. Then about 20 mins into the drive it jerks like the car is getting ready to throw up and it drops into a lower gear. If I am on the highway and this happens the RPMs go up to 4000 while going 70mph.
Let us know what you find out, tt2!
Mine hasn't done it in a while, but what it DOES like to do is raise RPMs by 100 or so back and forth periodically after going 70mph. The temporary solution I've found so far is to just floor it for a second and make it downshift to third, then it goes back into fourth normally and stays that way for a while....made last week's trip to Phoenix and back last week more bareable.
I KNOW this isn't a fix, but a way to deal in the meantime....
