Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
How long has it been since you last changed your drive belts? If your drive belts are worn, or slipping, this will affect the performance of your transmission. If only one of your belts are worn, it is still best to change both belts, while you are at it. It is also best to use only OEM belts.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
