how is the fluid?

Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 8 months ago.

Ok, this is usually caused by a faulty output speed sensor. The output speed sensor is located to the right of the manual shift lever

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Would that cause the slipping that happens? Seems to happen more when the car is just warming up.

start with the speed sensor..but slipping is generally caused by internal pressure loss ..so transmission rebuild or replace is the fix
