Customer Question
Pepboys said see transmission...

Pepboys said see transmission shop.when I'm driving up to 30 mph the rpm goes up and down from1-3 rpm and sometimes it will freeze for 2 seconds and hear will kick in to keep going on the freeway. My husband let chap push him while antilock system was on for about a mile can this be fixed without changing transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

I ckd tday it was good. But I haven't changed trans. Oil for awhile

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

2000 mits. Montero sportLs 4×4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montero yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. I had pep boys change fuel pump fuel module and sensors and ice had a mechanic fix heads because it was heating up and it still heats up

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just that pepboys said to see trans. Shop because of what it does
