The trans may need servicing. Poor fluid flow can cause this issue, also low fluid level can cause this issue. Insure your tans is full and if you don't know how go to you nearest Auto Zone store and the will check it for you and sell you the right fluid,

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak

checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

The line could need to be tightened. Tighten it with a 1/2" line wrench.(I think thats the right size for your car) Then check the trans fluid level to be sure its at the right level.

SOURCE: im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to

Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.

Show Diagram of speed sensor for a 2005 Chevy Impala

I would say you changed the trans fluid to attempt
a fix for something

Old fluid out new in ,NOT A FIX AT ALL

You may have bad trans solenoids,flushing in my
opinion causes that

I never flush some people do

Have the real trans issue properly diagnosed

Your trying to put a band aid on it ,won't work

Mileage has nothing to do with anything,seldom--ever

I have seen cars come of the assy line & stop --before
they got on the car carriers to leave the factory

Did you have it serviced or rebuilt, If you had it rebuilt I would take it back to the trans shop for warranty repairs.
If they just changed the trans filter I don't think it would cause your problem.You just have bad luck with the slipping trans
