Is the trans fluid level correct? Low fluid can cause the symptoms you describe. The level should be checked with the engine at operating temp and the shifter in park or neutral. Transmission rebuilds are extremely complicated, usually require special tools only available from the manufacturer, and not something to attempt without training. If you really want to attempt it yourself the full procedure will be available in the workshop manual. Your local ford dealer may let you copy the relevant pages, or you may be able to find a pdf copy online, or your local library may have trans rebuild books.

Is my rebuilt transmission already slipping?

If you had the transmission built at a reputable shop, take it back to them and point out the issue. Most shops will warranty a rebuild for up to a year and/or 15,000 miles. It's possible they didn't run the car through a 'relearn' cycle so that the transmission can sort out shift points and speeds based on engine rpm, load, vehicle speed, etc. Ask about that, too, when you bring it back.

what does stops, mean.?> .. skids to stop?
fails hot or cold engine or both? ever to the Full flush service every 50k?
its an A/T and as such , is very complex. (buy M/T?)
are you asking for guessing? or tests?
there are only 2 ways, ask, for DIY or read the FSM.
so what gears fail. slip or shift late or early? lots of gears.
report all actions of all gears and slip for sure.
what is slip?, that is when the RPM of engine rises faster
and MPH lags. called slip or in tranny lingo FLARE !

Did you insert the tranny diagnostic jumper and look for flash codes. per fsm? (on new cars this moved to PCM DTC's)

the FSM has s huge list of symptoms, about 10x and engine.
and 100s of pages.
i dont do A/t rebuilds but i must know how to test them on car.
the FSM covers that.! fully.... no need to guess., at all, read it.

Here i will make some simple review on those first pages
first, we do the stall test. see FSM.
brakes (both) hard set into front wheel chokes, car most not move
you then (fsm says) slam down the throttle. Low. (and others)
and watch ENGINE RPM
this is like 1500 -2000 (read the book, this number is a avg on cars)
this proves the tranny slips, do so for 5 seconds max.
this makes lots of heat in the tranny , RTM.
the next step is to check actual Tranny pump pressure at the ports
if this fails, the tranny needs to be changed out. (in most cases)

now the TCM. the FSM shows the pins.
The TCM is a tranny puter. (a transmission brain)
it has inputs and the outputs & shifts the tranny in all ways.

we first check that the outputs (a $10 voltmeter) are correct.
if correct and the tranny messes up?, it s a bad tranny
if incorrect we then check the TCM inputs.
if they are wrong, we correct that first.
the rule of GIGO works , for all computers, garbage in , nets garbage out. GIGO, so if the tail sensor is dead the TCM goes to limphome
and skips gears.

easy ,huh> the tranny has many ON CAR test
the above is just but a few, but very important. (fsm like)

also on some cars the OD lamp flashes or the D light? flash
to tell you, THE TRANNY BRAIN, has errors stored, please
do get them and read them, each are very important.
no matter what do the scan (new cars) and all old cars
the TCM diag jumper routine.. do so regardless.. of any trans issues.
never trust any CEL lamp or OD flash, scan it,

Changing the fluild ( all of it) might fix it if your lucky. Something overheating sounds possible. Any cooling system problem can cause this and cleaning the cooling system and flushing out the transmission cooler in the raditor may go a long way towards fixing your problem. dity raditor and or coolant will cause this problem. I you clean everything real good and then go and drive it and it goes longer but still does it your in for another rebuild. this time put in a new raditor to make sure the transmission lasted as long as it's supposed to. It's possible the throttle pressure was'nt set right and the trans upshifts too early and therefore the transmission gets too hot cause the engine is going too slow to make good transmission pressure and the slipping transmission overheats. again even after corrected it'll still do it as the transmission internal seals are adamaged by heat and it'll need to be rebuilt again.

1994 Ford probe GT 2.5 automatic, 4eat tranny What cause my transmission to slip from 3rd and 4th when hot? How do you fix the problem ?

It is going bad, it is 16 and anything past 10 years on a transmission is good. You need to get it rebuilt, or swap it for a rebuilt one. Not going to be cheap.

Car will not go move in forward gears

You are going to need a Rebuild on this Tranny. Unless you know how to Rebuild a Tranny, I would have it done at a Tranny Shop. If you get the Clutches in the Wrong order During Rebuild it could Crack the Housing on the Tranny and cause a Bigger Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Tranny is slipping

If the tranny is slipping and it's an automatic it's time to rebuild it or replace it with a rebuilt from a good tranny rebuilder with an exchange unit. That's about the only option you have here.
