Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
I have a 2001 Mercury Sable that will sometimes slip (or at least what I think is slip) when going into second gear. It only does it after I have been driving steady for I'd say 10 miles or so. Then there are times that it takes a little longer or it may not do it at all! Is my transmission on its way out? I did put some kind of Lucas stop slip or something in it. I felt like I saw an improvement, but right when I thought everything was okay it slipped. Oh, maybe I should tell you what I mean by slip... It seems to almost pause... I have heard the engine reve and be going no where before. I usually let go of the gas as a reflex so I am not sure if it does it every time. Thanks for your help!
Your transmission is more than likely going out. I do know that between 1997 and 2002 the transmission that went into GMC vehicles have had bad reviews. I had a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix that was doing the same thing and the transmission went out on me. I am not positive to this but i have read the research and it has happened to me before.
