Transmission slipping making noise

2003 Mazda Protege Automatic transmission is making noise and slipping, can I drive it 20 miles to a mechanic? I went to back out of my drive way and when I put the car into reverse it sounded like the transmission dropped. I had the transmission rebuilt 2 yrs ago so there should not be problems. When I tried to drive it again it sounded like something was grinding. I am not sure if this is my transmission and am I able to drive it to a mechanic?

If u keep it below 25 miles an hour you should make it, but this loud noise worries me, this noise means something is coming apart, if it does it may lock the trans up, so keep the speed down.

Ihave a 1997 mazda protege and after having it for a week I noticed the transmission will slip when going into 3rd gear (automatic transsion) the fuid is brown and I was worried about really messing things...


.One of the most common causes of a slipping transmission is a low automatic transmission fluid level, also a dirty and/or clogged automatic transmission filter can impede the normal flow of automatic transmission fluid throughout an automatic transmission and cause the transmission to slip. Adequate, unobstructed transmission fluid flow is necessary for the optimal operation and function of an automatic transmission, including the function of the transmission bands and gears, two transmission components that routinely cause transmission slippage.Another cause would be faulty torque converter action and maladjusted transmission band.

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

Grinding noise in front end


Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

It sounds as if you may have a short in the wire harness, or a bad plug on one of the sensors. This is common. Make sure the sensor connections are clean then use die-electric grease on them where they make contact.
