SOURCE: transmission problem

Your forward clutches are going out.It usually starts with your 1 to 2 shift then eventually it will only have 1 and reverse..Take a look at the dip stick..If it has blackish or grayish stuff on it bad trans is more than likely.Giving the trans a fluid flush is good but by doing that now after it is already slipping could result in even sooner failure..So the best advice I could give you is start saving for new trans or to rebuild the one you have...A good additive you could put in it to prolong the life is a LUCAS trans oil.Its really thick and sticky and will give your trans a little longer life before failure.This is not a permanent fix nor will it stop it from going out but will make it last a while longer..Try and not do any harsh take offs and try and let out the gas pedal when you think its going to shift from 1 to 2...If you let it slip into 2 it will fail even sooner yet..

My 2003 cavalier automatic transmission slips in last high gear


The slip is likely always there you just feel it the most in top gear because that is when the most stress is on the clutch pack inside the transmission. You will need to have the transmission overhauled in most cases to correct this.

My 1999 Buick Lesabre Limited slips out of gear when I'm driving and it has plenty of transmission fluid but it's drak brown.


This means that your transmission is burnt up. Im sorry to say it but the only way to fix it is to replace it. I had a truck do the same thing. Someone told me to flush it out with lucas but it did not work for me. It is always worth a try. Hope this helps

97 buick lasabre trans slips in overdrive


Either the cruise control is going out or the torque converter clutch circuit is going out on the trannys overdrive. Do you have check engine light codes? If so you will need to have a computer hooked up to read them. Darrel coleman also has a problem with his car like this and I have suggested the same thing to him
