The RPM of the engine goes up between shifts or more than the road speed when in a gear.
If the engine RPM is increasing but the road speed is not, the transmission may be slipping.

Will only pull in 4th gear and in 4 wheel drive

Automatic, or Standard? Last time transmission serviced? If auto, check fluid, if smells burnt, get serviced. However,it sounds like a problem in the linkage/s from the shift lever to the transmission and 4wheel controls.

How do I change hydraulic clutch on chevy s10 1996?

If it's the clutch slipping,has nothing to do with the master or slave cylinders,you need to replace the disc and pressure plate.Meaning the transmission has to come out.Just jumping out of second gear means it wasn't all the way into second.You bette rod some more testing,like hold the brake when you let the clutch out.If the car don't move,replace the clutch disc and pressure plate.If the engine stalls whenyou let the clutch out,theres nothing wrong with your clutch,but rev the engine a bit when you do this.

My 2000 Chrysler 300M misses around 2000rpm it feels like the transmission slips but i know its not that. I was told it was the coil packs but theyre expensive and id like to know for sure before i...

You didn't give any info about how many miles are on this car. When was the last time the spark plugs were changed. I would think that if a coil was bad it would act up at all speeds not just over 2000 rpm. I would definately change plugs first, unless you just changed them, then go after the coil packs, fuel injectors, etc. Are you getting a check engine light?

Ordered a speed sensor for my cadillac catera, I have had some slipping in the transmission and wanted to know if changing the sensor will possibly stop the problem in the transmission.

That all depends on what is causing the transmission to slip. Faulty speed sensors normally do not cause slipping. It can cause erratic, hard, or late shifting, but slipping is not usually included in that. If you want to know what is causing your transmission to slip, the place to start would be to scan your onboard computer system for fault codes and then properly diagnose the codes that are retrieved. Please note that fault codes NEVER tell you what parts to replace, they only tell you which of the many systems monitored by the computer are operating outside their designed range.

A link in your windshield wiper transmission has either slipped out or broken off. You will have to open up the area below the wiper arms to inspect and see what exactly happened in there.

My 1994 caravan drives about 200 feet then starts slipping.If I turn the ignition off and back on it will go another 200 feet.friends told me it is some sort of sensor .does any know whats going on .thanks

Please define the word "slipping" for me. To me it means the transmission is "slipping", the van is going down the road, and then the engine RPM's are still there, but the van keeps slowing down ? You try to put on more acceleration, but the engine revs up higher, but you go nowhere ?
Please let me know.

Emmission codes, Mass air flow sensor

The P0101 code is indeed a code indicating an issue with the MAF sensor. It could be something as simple as cleaning the sensor, or it could be faulty and in need of replacement.

Now, the P1870 code refers to the transmission, and a condition in which the PCM is detecting excessive slipping. That is to say it perceives the transmission slipping as it compares engine speed (RPM) and vehicle speed (MPH) and should a ratio be exceeded then the PCM will set code P1870. I would expect that you would notice a bit harsher shifting in response to this code, particularly on the 1-2 shift as the PCM will command higher fluid pressure to combat the slipping.

Now, it is possible that the an issue with the MAF would cause signals to the PCM to change significantly and to such an extent that the PCM would think something is off with the transmission, so I would start there, with the MAF sensor and see if that helps as it appears you were already thinking.
