Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Actual slippage would indicate an internal failure, with different possible causes depending on the gear point involved. It could be a clutch issue, the kickdown band, or possibly a line pressure issue.

You may not actually be feeling a slip though. You may have a governor pressure problem or the trans could actually be in limp in.

Can you describe exactly what symptoms you're experiencing?

Have you checked for fault codes?
