I found your answer here:

Why Does the SLIP Light Come on?
The SLIP light represents the vehicle's traction control program. When illumiated it takes over control of throttle and braking based on input from a myriad of sensors. The VDC (traction control) is initiated by wheel slip, yaw and any other factors that make the computer think you're on the verge of loosing control of the vehicle. There have been a lot of complaints about the G35's VDC being too interferring and actually causing harder driving conditions. The VDC can be turned off via a switch to the lower left of the steering wheel (useful if trying to pull out of a snowy spot when wheel spin is necessary, or "spirited" accelerating). Even with the VDC turned off, however, it will still kick in if it detects substantial loss of control. NOTE: if you plan on racing, turn the VDC off. Otherwise it will ****** the throttle when you chirp the wheels from 1st to 2nd gear.

My problem is reeving system in jeep grand. Cherokee its not reeving


Jeep grand cheerkee.
what year.?
which of 3 engines> or more>?

my guess is revving , means, (its good word)
means, car dont move?
the transmission slips? (engine RPM rises fast , but car does not accelerate in the same proportions)
or the RPM fail to rise, that means the engine Lacks power
those 2 are polar opposites.
engine problem
transmission slip. (flare)
2 paths to walk. do not guess. or it gets expensive fast.

Transmission slips after engine warms up


It isn't when the engine gets hot, it is when the transmission fluid gets hot that the slipping starts, due to wear of the clutches and gears inside the transmission.
First, check the fluid level to make sure it is full. If it is low, bring fluid level to full and see if that helps.
About all the owner can do with slipping automatics is trying a transmission fluid and filter change to see if transmission revives and stops slipping. The bottom pan is removed, fluid (about 6-8 quarts) is drained, and a new filter is installed before the pan is replaced with a new gasket, sealed up, and fresh fluid added. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes the transmission is worn too bad to help, and you are left with looking for a replacement transmission.
Check the fluid level first. Good luck.

Transmission over drive is causing the transmission to slip. When I take off the overdrive the transmission functions normally but it uses much more gas.


Roger, that doesn't even make a whole lot of sense to me. If the overdrive is causing the transmission to slip, wouldn't it also cause the fuel mileage to go down? Are you sure the transmission is slipping? Or is the transmission simply shifting in and out of overdrive? If it is, is it shifting at the proper speeds? Driving at around 40 - 50 Mph will sometimes make the transmission go in and out of overdrive repeatedly. This can be perfectly normal.

Have you checked your transmission fluid level?

Is your overdrive off light flashing? If the transmission is actually slipping the OD OFF light should be blinking at you to let you know there is a transmission problem. Either that, or the Check Engine light will be coming on. In either of these cases, you need to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes.

Check light appears on dash board and slips gears. Changed transmission oil and filter. The gears started changing normal but now slips gears when you excellerate the engine makes noise but car does not...


Hi,

You should diagnose the check engine light. You can have this done at a mechanic or alternatively you can rent a scanner from a parts store. What may feel like a slipping transmission can be a misfire.

Code P1870 What is P1870


The code description for P1870 is "transmission component slipping" and usually means that the computer has detected a difference between what the input speed is and output shaft speed should be under certain conditions and tagged it as a slipping component. Usually it means that a clutch pack [usually direct drive clutch] or band isn't holding under a load and has started to slip. Sometimes the slippage can be observed on a scan tool during a road test but if the slippage is bad enough it may be noticable just driving it. Low transmission fluid level could cause this problem so make sure you check it before going any further. If it turns out that there is interal slippage then the transmission would have to come out and be repaired.

1998 ford explorer is having a transmission slip bad. Could it mean that the fluid and shift solenoid needs changing?


Shift solenoid is typically WHEN to shift, not slipping.
Bands and fluid are slipping (and sometimes pump).

Cheap test, remove old, install new fluid... test.
If it works - congrats.
If not, AAMCO or other transmission place for a real test.
