Default 07' GT Auto Transmission Problem

So here's a brief explanation of my current problem. Last week my cousin tried to Drift my 07 gt in the rain. He lost control, missed a house and instead jumped the car into a tree. One bumper cover, bumper grill, driver headlight, hood, driver splash guard, lower deflector, oil pan, and tranny gasket later I now have a new problem.

Sometimes when I start accelerating from a dead stop or from a roll (just accelerating to speed limit at normal throttle) the tranny hangs in neutral for a few seconds before up shifts/downshifts. This first happened when I was going uphill on our driveway. It happens in any gear / any speed. Completely random times. I think maybe the mechanic that changed my transmission gasket maybe didn't put enough fluid in. It started happening right after I got it back from them. Any thoughts?

Sounds to me like you don't have enough fluid but I'd quit driving till you find out to prevent further damage.

take it in, it probably got screwed in your off roading stunt. They should know what they are doing and have it fixed correctly for you

I wasn't in the car. My younger brother took my car last saturday night and he let my cousin drive. None of them were hurt. My brother turned off TCS and told him to floor it around a turn in my neighborhood. They were so scared of how I would react, they didn't bother to tell me till the next morning. I never liked letting anyone drive my car and now no one will again. Lesson Learned.

So I had the car check out and the fluid was a little bit low. It's running fine now.
