your transmission runs through part of the radiator. Check your fluid level and see if your hoses are conneced right.

Absolutely; Automatic transmissions will slip for a number of factors but the the #1 cause is low fluid level closely followed by very old and brown fluid. Recomended fluid is MerconDexronII. Best of luck.

Is my transmission bad


Try driving it in each gear and change gears manually if its slipping you should be able to feel the slip in whichever gear is causing the problem. If the tranny is original with 230K on it, it would have been a good idea to adjust the bands on it when you did the oil change. Overfilling and under filling will give you the same problem because in both cases the fluid gets aerated, causing it to slip. Make sure the levels are correct for the temp of the fluid.

It sounds like you either have a dirty filter, or a solenoid is faulty in the transmission. Change the fluid and filter, put some Lucas transmission oil in it and see if that resolves the issue. If the solenoid is dirty then it will cause the transmission to shift improperly, the Lucas will clean it.

Transmission slips when cold


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If you have this problem, I strongly suggest that you replace the fluid. If the fluid is burnt it tends to slip.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Would the engine over heating on my 2002 dodge neon cause my transmition to slip?


No, this is not related. You just happen to lucky enough to have two problems at the same time. If the engine got to a point where is was glowing hot, it could transfer the heat to the cooling lines causing air bubbles in the fluid and henceforth a slipping tranny. However, your engine would seize solid forever given those circumstances.

How long before a transmission is hot enough to slip


It should not be a matter of how hot, but when. If it only happens when the car is hot then I would check the level. While checking the level, I would see if there is any blackish stuff in the fluid. If there is then I would have your tranny rebuilt because the clutch material is breaking down and could be the cause of the slipage.

Transmission slipping?


You should try to check the tranny fluid while the car is warm and running to see if it is low. This can cause slippage.

Have you had the fluid and filter changed if not you may want to get that done because a dirty filter can cause the transmission to slip as well. {Be cautious though because if the car has high mileage and the fluid has never been changed you may run into bigger problems. Check with your local mechanic before selecting this option.

Worn bands etc can cause slippage as well this would require repair.

Tune up


Slipping tranny can be caused by that. Rule of fixing cars is if not sure start cheap. Replace the Filter and fluid. Also it wont hurt to put in Lucas Transmission Additive with the fluid change. Change plug 2 ways if it has motor mounts on top then disconnect them and pull the engine foward. or

No need to rotate engine as I was told that sometimes this causes damage to exhaust link which is flex. First two plugs can be reached by going along the same channel as exhaust pipe from header runs. Last plug remove right side tire and you can reach up by body to change it. This one is blind, but it's possible.
