On the throttle body and it could, but the engine light would have to been on a very long time. It is read for shifting. If it was bad and never replaced, then after time the transmission has the wear and tear from it. Only then will it slip and get hot because the clutches are gone from bad shifting patterns.

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

I have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred and the transmission is slipping. I need to be able to check the transmission fluid to see if it is low. How to I check the transmission fluid?


You may not be able to really. Some of these have dipsticks and some do not. CVT transmissions do not but some 6 speed transmissions do. If you do have one it should be near the air filter box. IF you have one....put the vehicle in park and start it up. Leave it running at an idle for several minutes until its good and hot. While it is running and hot, pull the stick and check the level. (be very careful) Fluid should be red in color and at the point on the stick where is says warm. If it is brown, you have trouble, if it is low, you have trouble. ie leak. Either way you look at it. ANY time a tranny slips it DOES cause further damage. I recommend a tranny shop

What would cause these symptoms on a 2003 dodge durango engine stalls sometimes accelleration is affected and transmission seems to slip but may not be slipping


If the transmission seems to be slipping, check the fluid level for the automatic transmission.

If the engine stalls on acceleration, the tps or throttle position sensor may be bad, or the engine is in need of a tune up.

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

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.

First problem P0734, then some internal failure, now 3rd tranny


Take it back to the dealer and have them test the TPS. The PCM takes information from the TPS to control the transmission fluid pressure that controls the firmness of the shifts and the amount of fluid pressure to hole the gears in place. The reading from the TPS should be smooth and constant. it the TPS passed then it's a good chance that your looking at another transmission. P0734 mean's the 4th gears are slipping. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
