Question about 1995 Dodge Avenger
When you start the car and put it in drive it moves forward for about 50 yards then the transmission starts to slip and slow down even though it is in drive and the engine is reved. it will eventually come to a stop while still in drive and reving the engine. There is no unusual noise of any kind. You then can turn off the car then restart it and put in drive again and it will again engage and start to move forward. Then it will again start to slip and come to a stop. Car has 159k miles and dont think the trans filter and fluid has ever been changed. What could be the problem. If the gears in the transmission were bad then it would not move forward and if it did there would be alot of noise. Please help.
Auto trans operates on fluid pressure. if the trans has never been serviced, more than likely the filter is plugged, and or the fluid is bad. no doubht its burned and will smell and look like it. get it towed to a shop and have the fliud and filter changed first, then check the band adjustment.recommend a trans shop do it and not jiffylube.

Depends on what auto tranny you have. If you take it to an tranny shop and have an exchange rebuilt put in be prepared to shell out $3500.00 for replacement.
