Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
have you checked the transmission fluid level?
is the color of the fluid good,red or does it smell and maybe a brownish color?
ok.and reverse works fine?
the car only has 25ooo miles on it?
i dont have anything to do with charges,i am an independent mechanic
i see,,how many miles is on the car?
ok,,so,,reverse works fine,but it is slipping in all forward gears,,correct?
the reason is ,the transmission is slipping.
from the way you explain the problem there is only one thing you can try from outside the transmission,that is to replace that transmission filter again..but
i really dont have any good thoughts on this transmission,i think the forward clutches are worn out and the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced,,sorry
no,my advice is to try a filter,a clogged filter could cause this,,
understand,i rebuild automatic transmissions everyday..
if the filter doesnt fix it,i will think the forwad clutches are burnt out,,if this is the case,there is no easy button.
and yes,the transmission would need to be rebuilt or replaced,,,there is nothing alse anyone could do from outside of the transmission to fix it if this is the case,,so,try a new filter
the revears gear is lower and may take less pressure to hold,,
a clogged filter can restrict fluid and cause low pressure causing the pistons to not hold the clutches
no,,i am not at all certain of the filter,,i am saying that is the only hope you have..
i think the transmission may be done,,and will need to be rebuilt
it wouldnt be common,but possible
again,it is likely that the transmission is done,,but if you want to try something,the filter would be the only thing to try that could be doing this short of rebuilding the transmission
yes,,the forward..not the sprag..
if it does wll in all of the gears manually shifting,the problem may be the tfp switch on the valve bodytfp[transmission fluid pressure]
i understand,,sometimes you wont
