Was there much debris in the transmission pan when you removed it?
There was No debris and did not smell burnt
It sounds as though the transmission main pump is failing. When the pump gets weak it can't maintain the amount of fluid needed to keep the clutch disc's locked in. Thats why you feel it slipping.
Many shops perform transmission flushes, a flush may or may not help this problem. It really sounds as though the problem may be more involved
It does run fine (usuallY) when cold, but when it heats up it starts this nonsence.
Some of the transmission shops offer free diagnostics and can test the pump output pressure and tell you for sure. If it were mine, I'd start with the transmission fluid flush. It is very cheap in comparision
Ok, will try that and see where we end up
That is where I'd be heading. With the cost of transmission rebuilds, I avoid it at all cost...Thanks, Josh
No problem. Have a good weekend...Thanks Josh
