Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid

1996 Intrepid Transmission Problems.

I have a 1996 Intrepid with a 3.3 engine. My transmission was rebuilt almost exactly 2 years ago. Recently, my car started slipping gears. All the fluid levels in the car are fine, we check them every week. There is a small leak but it doesn't make the fluid level fo down hardly at all. The weird thing is if you ease on the gas so the car is hardly moving at all, slowly let the car build speed, it won't slip at all. I'm hoping this is just a simple filter change job. Any suggestions?

Change you fluid and filter but when you do add Lucas Transmission Fix its a non-solvent formulas that stops slip, hesitation and rough shifting in worn transmissions and completely eliminates most seal leaks, it work like a charm on my 2001 caviler that had a very simular prolbem , i didnt even change the fluid i just sucked out enofgh fluid to put in the product . this stuff works

When i am driving my 2002 isuzu axiom when it gets to 30mph it feels like i put my car into neutral And drops down to 20mph. If i put my car into 3rd gear (is automatic transmission) it drives just fine. ...

did you scan it yet,
neutral does that mean it slips.
slips means, engine RPM rises fast but not car. does it.
do not let it slip or the tranny will burnup.
the transmissions on newer cars are all electronically shifted
by the TCM brain. and it has LIMPHOME , just like engines.
and skips gears , (varies by maker what)

you need to learn or ask someone to drive car and see if problem
is engine power lost or transmission failure it takes just a short drive.

no matter what scan the PCM , see all errors and report them.
or get car serviced,
or just diagnosed (yes, put that on work order and sign it)
there 3 choices......
