Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

When a transmission slips in a gear the rpms rise high and fast but speed does not increase equally. Is that what you get? Your CD4E uses the same parts in 2nd and 4th gears. Are you having issues in 4th gear as well? Additives can help many things in many different ways, though do note its not wrench in a bottle. It can help seals, and make things move easier but it can not repair a worn out clutch plate or band or torn seal. yes there are clutch plates inside your automatic transaxle, I am not confusing your vehicle with one that has a manual trans.
