My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Fixing the throttle body will help it shift better by giving you the proper shift points, but slipping itself, no it wouldn't. Slipping is a good indication of bad friction discs or a torque converter acting up. Now if the throttle body is sending the wrong signal, it could be unlocking the converter in which you get a feeling of slipping, but that is when you are at a cruise and not under an acceleration. So the answer depends on when it feels like it is slipping. If at accelerate, no. If at cruising speed, it is possible, but still not a guarantee.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
