What makes it not accelerate after a long drive?


lost power, hot/
lots of reasons.
i can list 50 bad parts. or more........
but wont. we do the tests and let the chips fall.
so if the RPM of engine rises, fast , and not car.
that is tranny slip
but if its not tranny slip, then its lost engine power
which is it, we drive car and see that in 1 second.

Transmission


double posted.
added trans.
so the trans slips only cold> or hot engine.
hot tranny oil , can pass by a filthy tranny filter.
do the 50kmile full tranny service now, skipping service , caused.
at the least.

full flush and new filter. (pan off) is full service, less is not.
at the least a new filter. it may be packed,
the clutch packs make dust , this dust in the oil fill packs a filter.
50k service is a good plan.... dispite EPA bs to the contrary.

I have a 96 Monte Carlo that runs and shifts great when motor is cool. When warm, it my problemstarts shifting hard and trans statrs acting stupid. What is my prob?


Id say ur tranny is starting to go bad. Or it could be a modulator, or ur tranny seal needs replaced. The filter inside could of gotten lose. Iwould just take it to ur local tranny shop dont say ur having issues and get a fluid and a screen change should be like $79.00 and if ur having a bad tranny they will say u have metal or tell u there are issues besides the check up needed. I had a trans am and when it got hot it would slip and when i turned coners its was slipping bad. It turned out being the tranny screen had slipped lose. Guess i was jumping bumps to hard. idk but good luck

Transmission slips after engine warms up


It isn't when the engine gets hot, it is when the transmission fluid gets hot that the slipping starts, due to wear of the clutches and gears inside the transmission.
First, check the fluid level to make sure it is full. If it is low, bring fluid level to full and see if that helps.
About all the owner can do with slipping automatics is trying a transmission fluid and filter change to see if transmission revives and stops slipping. The bottom pan is removed, fluid (about 6-8 quarts) is drained, and a new filter is installed before the pan is replaced with a new gasket, sealed up, and fresh fluid added. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes the transmission is worn too bad to help, and you are left with looking for a replacement transmission.
Check the fluid level first. Good luck.

I have a p1870 error code what do i need to replace to fix it


Your Trans is definately slipping even though it doesn't seem like it. If this just started, DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT!!!! drive the car in this state, even with the SES light off it's still happening. You WILL have to get a rebiuld if you continue to drive it like this. Here's the deal of EXACTLY whats happening.... and no, an auxillary cooler won't remedy this problem.

(BEFORE SES LIGHT)

#1 - Valvebody gets stuck closed, insufficient tranny fluid to cool transmission.
#2 - Trannsmission gets HOT due to insufficient fluid, and begins to slip (explains lack of accelleration power)
#3 - Computer detects slip after about an half hour of highway speeds and engages the FAILSAFE which applies MAXIMUM LINE PREASURE to push the fluid to the transmission although this does not work due to stuck valve.... MAX LINE PREASURE is actually what causes your harsh 1st-2nd gear shift... before this it SEEMS to run perfectly fine although it's not...
#4 - The First it detects it in a running cycle, the computer just activates the FAILSAFE with harsh shifting WITHOUT the SES light... however the SECOND time it detects it in the next running cycle...then...

(SES)

#5...You get an SES light with the code P1870 (Transmission Component Slipping or 4X4 Transfer box)... PLUS FAILSAFE mode which activates harsh 1st-2nd gear shifting...
#6 ...You turn car off, turn car back on and everythings running fine??? Nope, problems still there, you just resetted your computer which deactivates FAILSAFE mode until it detects another slip....

You will COOK your transmission if you continue to drive it like this... Trust me I have a 97 V6 with an A4 (Same tranny) and had to get it rebiult because it got so hot in there it fried all the shift solenoids, Ironically I just got it out today. The Sonnax Kit listed above is the common remedy to this issue... After the kit's installed the problem will never happen again...

My 2000 concorde runs great when cold then tranny slips when hot. . . . . ?


Fluid level ok? Check it when hot and car running.

Have you had the tranny serviced recently?

This type of tranny uses the Dextron +4 fluid, any other fluid would mess up the transmission.

I have a 1999 Intrepid, no problem w tranny, but a month ago I put an aditive that a friend recomended. After only about 5 miles I felt the car more responsive and with more power. I also think my gas mileage improved.

I got it at AutoZone the brand is RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair
it says works with all types of fluids.

I hope this will help. Good luck

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.

Slipping transmission when hot


Check the fluid level and make sure it is up.If o/k then suggest a trans service which will have the filter and fluid changed. This could be your problem.
