SOURCE: slipping transmission when hot

Check the fluid level and make sure it is up.If o/k then suggest a trans service which will have the filter and fluid changed. This could be your problem.

SOURCE: transmision overdrive light started blinking check

Without the information as to why you had the Tranny rebuilt at 51K, I can share with you most likely the problem as per my experience with these units. The Valve body or Block depending on the year is going to be the accused problem as well as repair. Yet the reason most fail is actually the Servo inside the Trans Case itself.
Some common complaints associated with a 5R55S / 5R55W are high TCC slip RPMs under increasing loads, slip codes, and converter apply or release concerns. These complaints are often caused by wear at the ID of the TCC modulator plunger valve sleeve, due to constant oscillation by the pulse width modulated TCC solenoid. This plunger valve positions the TCC modulator valve, which feeds line to the apply circuit, which controls slip rate. Wear of the sleeve will allow the TCC slip rate to continue to rise, and could prevent full lockup.
The Servo kit assemblie restores hydraulic integrity to the TCC solenoid circuit with precisely tolerance parts. The elevated modulated pressure, will not raise apply pressure to the point of TCC piston fatigue, and will result in firmer TCC apply and reduced slip RPM in heavier use applications.
02 Explorers built prior to 03/04/02 with a 5R55W Tranny; can show no 3rd Gear, or slippage in 2-3 gear, with diagnostic codes P0733 & PO745 present.This may be due to a broken Band. Two tests will easily confirm or deny this problem.

Most assuridly the valve body or block will need to be replaced. But further investigation as to why should be a concern or the Valve Body or Block will be no more than a band aid. Repeating itself within a few months. Improper dianosis for these units are why so many Ford Owners are constantly bad mouthing explorers in the Forums.

SOURCE: my transmision fluid is black and two transmision

The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

Transmission slipping, have to restart engine

does the tranny slip or not.
only you can look and see, got a tachometer or a trained ear?

if it dont slip and dont go , that be bad engine power.
no one on earth can go from here until that is answered.

2001 kia sephia slips out of gear. Trouble codes P1500, P1624, P0740.

Low fluid or too much ATF? (foaming it up and killing bearings)

p07xx is tranny DTC codes. (errors)
TCC lockup failure. (the TCM commanded the lock and
the tail shaft sensor did not rise in RPM
that is the engine RPM does not match tail RPM or 1:1 ratio.
which is LOCK ratio.

1500 is speed sensor , reads wrong,
No Vehicle Speed Signal to TCM.

1624 means.
MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM.
the means simply the Tcm SAW and error and sent that error up stream to ECM. creating 1500.
remember the ECU never knows what part is bad.
NEVER ! it only knows, the tests failed. (monitors)
the first thing i do is find out which VSS failed.
on some cars there are 2 to 5
the first speed sensor is RPM does the scan tool show correct engine RPM? y/n
if yes,
does the scan-tool show correct MPH? sensor 2.
y/n if not fix that first.
the TCM function (tranny brain must not be lied to, in this order)
engine RPM , MPH.
and last the tranny its self as VSS (rpm) sensors. 1 to3.
my guess, (too lazy to look it up) has 1 sensor on the tranny tail.
if all is good and 1500 means VSS 2 tranny tail is fibbing.
then its one of 3 things.
(all others good)REMEMBER the TCM does comparisons to all speed sensors to shift the car correctly so the front sensor count first. then last the rear.
VSS2 lies. this is bad bad tranny (slips) bad wires to VSS2 or bad VSS2.
most TCM go to limp home when the tranny slips to stop burning up the clutch packs. may skip gears too.

now what does slips out of gear mean. a neutral FLARE?
or down shifts,
if the tranny ever slips. this is bad news.
if it does slip 1500 is only the warning that it did
it say RPMs go out of control and threw 1500 pronto.

Try to think(sic) like a TCM what would you do if the tranny malfs.
answer, throws codes.
and goes to limphome, if necessary, (FSM show these facts)
so does alldata dot com
what i do is try to get tranny to slip. using all gears.
if it slips ,its bad.
The TCM can not run a slipping tranny.
the TC does slip, but the TCM has that all figured out. (modeled)
not locked, and locked it must not.
good luck and do ask questions.

The gears on my car are not changing, could it be the transmision or the airflow meter?

first learn now to tell, if the engine lacks power ,or the tranny is slipping
that is easy.
1: increase speed, does RPM(tachometer) rise faster (independant) of road speed. (that is called, trans slip.)
2: the trans dont slip. so the engine rpms stay low (gears work) and
the engine has no power.
if the engine has no power, fix engine.

The trans is very complex. if it messes up post that and what it does
under all driving and gear selecton modes, and hills and flat ground.
why pick the air flow meter, MAF , the most expensive part of EFI sensors. why guess there is a very simple test for the MAF, just ask.
its all in the FSM or here.

1998 Dodge caravan AWD transmision slips at full throttle

Have you serviced the transmission latley? fluid, filter, band adjustment

Usually under heavy throttle causing the slip is caused by a seal in the pump leaking off hydraulic pressure letting the clutches slip.

Does it slip in all gears or just 1st.?
Does it slip in reverse?
The reason I ask this is because 1st and reverse use different fluid pathways,

also you can take it to a tranny shop and have them check the fluid pressure at the accumlator port to determine what the exact problem is,but my advice is to just drive it easy and make it last as long as you can,a new or rebuild tranny from a dealer would run 2500 or more.

there is a website that you can use to find a replacement transmission

Our 2001 Kia Optima, automatic 2.4L at 155k miles has very poor acceleration, tranny slips, sometimes sticks at 3k rpm at 55-65mph, we need to stop, shut off car, restart to reset. Must warm up car to...

This is not what you want to hear, but its time to replace or rebuild the transmission. The clutch packs are worn causing your slipping concern. and your fluid is probably contaminated with the clutch material which can cause hydraulic circuit failure.
