Put ATF3 or 4 from dealer in it. Has to be Mopar ATF 3or 4, preferably 4 but 3 o.k. People will tell you dexron is o.k. & same thing, but it's not and many Chrysler transmissions will act up if not the proper fluid. If your stuck somewhere & that's all they have available, then o.k. use it temporarily to get you home, then get it out & filter changed at same time. Not sure which engine you have, but try looking on driver side near front or side/end of engine. My 99 3.8L is on drivers side about half way back of the engine.

Why Is My Automatic Transmission Slipping? If you have an automatic transmission and it "slips" while you are driving it-that is, the car engine revs without the power going to the wheels-the most common cause (though not the only possible cause) is low transmission fluid. If the slipping is caused by low fluid, it will get worse as the transmission gets hotter.
Why Is My Manual Transmission Slipping? A standard ("manual") transmission uses fluid too, but leaks aren't a common issue; a standard transmission could lose all its fluid and never slip at all, though eventually it would lock up while driving down the road. If you have a standard transmission, and it's slipping-the engine revs but it doesn't transmit power to the wheels-the problem is usually in the clutch.
Further down in the article I discuss how to diagnose this problem.

Barely started transmission slipping

Check the fluid level and condition. Typically it is just because the fluid is low. There is a fill plug located on the side of the transmission towards the top. It will have a square in the center where you can put the end of a ratchet in. Remove the plug and put your pinky in the hole. If you don't feel fluid its low. Check to see where its leaking from. Transmission fluid does not evaporate.

Ford f250 2005 transmission how do you check the fluid and how many quarts do I use?

22's answer as to location is correct. Check the fluid after the vehicle has warmed up and with the engine running. Check your manual for fluid type if any is required (should be type "F"). Do not overfill as it will not help. If fluid is a qt low you ahould check transmission lines going from radiator to the tranny as there is a leak somewhere. Also look around the transmission pan for leaks. Slipping of the transmission is the most obvious indicator of low fluid, stepping on the gas but the transmission doesn't push you faster. Hope this helps. GT

Does a slipping transmission always = rebuild?

check your trans fluid level before any thing else, low fluid will cause it to slip, if it is low and you keep driving it that way then you will burn up the clutches and need a rebuild

This could be an indication that you are either low on automatic transmission fluid or your transmission is slipping. Check your fluid level before driving it again. Continually driving with low (or bad burned fluid) will damage your transmission.

Often the cause is low transmission fluid. Follow the instructions in your manual for checking it, because unlike checking your oil level, checking transmission fluid levels require that the vehicle is running.

Please, by no means do this check if you are uncomfortable doing it. Have a "gearhead" friend that you trust or a mechanic show you how.

Most manufacturers ask that you start the car, and while holding down the brake pedal, slowly shift through reverse and then all your forward gears, then place the car back in park.

Next (with the car running- CAREFUL!), find the transmission dipstick under the hood, pull it out, and wipe it off. Put the dipstick back in, pull it out and check the level. If it is low, you need to add some transmission fluid of the type specified by your manual into the dipstick hole (you will need an inexpensive transmission fill funnel), a little at a time, and keep checking it as described above until it is at the FULL mark.

It is important to note that the dipstick is marked FULL HOT (car is warmed up) and FULL COLD (car is NOT warmed up) because transmission fluid expands quite a bit and overfilling is bad for your tranny!

I own a Jeep with a Chrysler "straight six" engine (one of the best motors ever!) and my transmission slipped because of low fluid - I added a bottle of "transmission stop slip and stop leak" fluid to it and topped off the remainder with the proper type of transmission fluid, and now, seven months later, I do not lose any tranny fluid and it shifts great! The stop leak is more expensive, but IMHO it is worth the cost.

Please rate my solution when you get a chance!

92 thunderbird transmission slipping, its about a half of a quart low. would this cause it to slip and what type of fluid do you use?

Absolutely; Automatic transmissions will slip for a number of factors but the the #1 cause is low fluid level closely followed by very old and brown fluid. Recomended fluid is MerconDexronII. Best of luck.
