Customer Question

Hello, I have a 1992 Geo Metro Automatic transmission and every time I start up a hill it struggles in drive then when I shift in L it struggles less. Basically it seems that in Drive it always is struggling I have to rev the engine high to get it to go, mechanic said it is a clutch issue
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?
Customer: 65000 and yes original transmission
JA: Are you fixing your Metro yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no I am not fixing it myself, my mechanic recommends replacing the clutch or toque converter
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just need to know if I can buy a torque converter kit for the Geo or a automatic clutch for the transmission
