SOURCE: transmission is slipping on 1992 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

Dude.. You need to adjust the TV cable or it is broken. It runs from the throttle to the transmission. It sounds like it is starting off in the wrong gear. All of this is due to that cable man! Have it checked out before it burns the trans out! Also; make sure it is full on fluid, and DO NOT over fill it. After you have driven it for a while, stop on level ground, put it in park, and check the dipstick. check it many times, and go by the low side of the stick. It may read up there on one side but low on the other, and if this is the case it is low. The fluid should show full on both sides of the stick. When changing the filter, there is a grommet type seal that goes up in the valve body, and they are very hard to change without the proper tool to do it with. A common mistake is some people think the old one is out and put the other one in, and have two in it. This will cause all kinds of problems. If that seal gets damaged it will **** air and cause the trans to give problems. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Chevy Caprice Classic Transmission, car won't go after warmed up

Unfortunately, this transmission will need a rebuild. this is much more than a filter or seal. what has happened here is, the gear ratio is all out of whack.

SOURCE: transmission leak 94 caprice classic

If its in the line its self just cut the line in two and take some fuel line hose, the right diameter, slip it over the line with a couple of clamps and that should fix it. Theres not much pressure there and its a cheap fix.

SOURCE: 1991 Caprice Classic 305 engine surge

Sounds like the throttle position sensor to me. I have a 1991 caprice wagon and I have to replace this part every 6 months or so. It's a cheap easy to replace part, around $25, but I haven't been able to find one that will last like the OEM. It's just a variable resistor that tells the computer where you have the gas pedel. When it fails it tells the computer you're giving it gas when you're not.

With any luck...
This years tax time repair could just be that leaky exhaust (Rusty muffler or plugged CATALYTIC CONVERTER)..

Annual repair is pretty good... (better than most)
but the TWO you don't want to put off

Brakes & Exhaust (ignoring could be fatal).

Just know your prices before going to the

Transmission Worries


I would replace the fluid and filter. Sometimes the fluid gets broken down and as it heats up it thins out and cannot create enough pressure. Also the filter could be clogged not allowing enough fluid to flow.
