levels are up fluid ok was changed 2000 miles ago
Mitsubishi Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

ok, we need to know why is slipping and the only way without guessing is to know the fault code. the transmission faults will not turn on the check engine light is most vehicles so it will need to be scanned with a scan tool that has the capability of reading the transmission control module
