Transmission slips at 40 km/h

I own a 2000 chev venture ls and when i accelerate after i stop it goes fine till i hit about 40 km/h then it seems to be slipping so i let off the gas and wait for it to go into the next gear. Any ideas???
Could it be the fluids or needing a change or is the tranny going?

Could be a shift solonoid, or line pressure solonoid, I believe there are three or more electrical solonoids in that transmission, you could take it to a tranny shop and have them scan for trouble codes on tranny , cost to replace solonoids 550 to 800, much less than replacing tranny! good luck!

Seems to me , the 3rd gear shift range is slipping.
You probably have internal failure.
You should take to transmission shop

    What I meant by internal failure is a part that is lubericated inside the transmission.

    The transmission runs on pressure from the fluid. The slipping is probably caused from a lack of pressure. There is a seal or clutch disk, band could be damage.

    A complete transmission overhaul runs around $1500.00 to $2500.00 dollars.

    Some times a transmission shop has a unit on the shelf ready to go. That could cost a little less.

    Another option would be to check a good used transmission with low miles. I would say 50,000 miles or less. You will save on the labor . The part can be a lot less. I would guess you can save at least $500.00 or more. I would make sure you get a transmission flush and filter change of the transmission you would be getting.

    Good luck , I hope I helped.

It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
