You need new clutches---look at the fluid
it should be pink in color if it is yellow or brown you are talking a bit of $$ since the tran has to be removed from the truck

My 99 jimmy service engine light came on. The computer says component in transmission slipping. It shifts hard from 1st to2nd after the tranny warms up. What causes this


Hi, I am assuming the code is a p1870, this code is for an internal slip condition. Check the trans fluid, It should be full, and clean. If it smells burnt, there is a good chance there are burnt clutches, or a burnt band in the trans.From experience, I think this is something you should have checked at a trans shop with a scanner. The trans is probably in need of an overhaul. Good luck...

My car will not reverse but it will go forward


Sounds like a typical reverse band problem...cover the easy things first however... is the fluid full??? check it engine hot in park....is the fluid burnt??? bad smell not red like out of the can... if its low or if its burnt make sure you purchase the proper fluid for your particular vehicle some trans fliuds dont mix...a trans service may fix it as the trans has a filter that (may) be clogged but usually this causes a non shift in drive as well as reverse...if all else fails sounds like a trans repair/replacement is in the horizons.Cost factors: Trans fluids $3.00 qt.: trans service $30.00-$100.00: Trans repair/replacement $600.00-$1500.00.

Auto trans lost 3rd and overdrive . 2nd trans in 2 months. both had under 100,000 miles on them. filter and fluid was changed after install. the fluid is still red and does not smell burnt.


the solenoids for the shift control seem to be the problem. Check the computer for codes. Auto Zone will do a computer scan for free if you take your car there and ask for this free scan

Check ur fluid--is it burnt or have a bad smell? You might only need a trans service which is changing the fluid and filter, in the process the tech will tell u if there are any filings in the pan, if so u will need an overhaul, if not the service might fix u up--good luck

Trans acts like it is kicking into neautral when it hits 3rd gear and it slips unless you are mashing down on the throttle


you have worn 3rd gear, hate to say it but mine did it in 2nd and had to get a new trans. try pulling your dipstick a smell it to see if it smells burnt or it is black in color
