my transmission slips
Check the fluid level. Is it full? You check it with the engine warmed up and running in “park”. The next step is to look in the yellow pages under “Transmissions”…Figure $1800-$2400 for a rebuild…
I will repeat Caddyman’s suggestions, albeit with some added detail:
Check the fluid level. Is it full?" You check it with the engine warmed up and running in “park”.
[b]If is is not full, slowly add the correct type of fluid (as specified in your Owner’s Manual) until it is almost at the full mark.
Does the fluid have a burnt odor, or is it any color other than red? If so, that is a very bad sign.[/b]
The next step is to look in the yellow pages under “Transmissions”…Figure $1800-$2400 for a rebuild.
When looking for a transmission shop, be sure to AVOID AAMCO, Lee Myles, Cottman, Mr. Transmission, or any other chain operation–unless you want to be told that you need a new/rebuilt transmission, whether you really do or not. Seek out an independent transmission shop that has been in business for at least 3 years.
see if the flud smells burnt if it does you can always look at a junk yard for one
some times it is a better option than to spend more money that you might not have it is a lot less money. or you can have it rebuild which most of the time comes with a warranty.
