Basically you take it to someplace where you can stop and then go full throttle until you go through all the gears. Do that 3-4 times in a row. Be sure to be careful and do it someplace without a lot of traffic. If that does not work you may need to take it in for more service.

If you decide to head back to your dealer for this, please let me know. I'll check out some additional assistance.
