Have you checked the transmission fluid level in park when the engine and transmission are warmed up? Is it full?
Does the fluid look red like it should or look dark brown and smell burned? If it looks and smells obviously burned, that is an indication of internal damage and it will need to be rebuilt.

Otherwise, there may be another problem with this specific transmission that I am unaware of.

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.

Coming to stop sign by putting break gear slips then return to park move to drive runs. second as i drive in curves slips but as give gas enough continues running.


Just to make sure I got this right. If you come to a stop, the car won't pull again unless you put it in park? Then, if you start into a curve, the transmission starts to slip unless you give it more gas? This could be signs of a bad torque converter, failing fluid pump (not as likely), or burnt/low transmission fluid level. Check the transmission fluid after the vehicle has been driven (warm engine), leave it running, and on a level surface. Check the level twice and take the lowest reading.

Assuming your vehicle has an automatic transmission, and if it just started doing this,your probably low on transmission fluid. if this has been going on for some time....there's a good chance the transmission has been damaged permanently. That is to say....if you have repeatedly put the car in gear and revved the engine and or driven it while it is slipping badly, it doesn't take too much of this to burn up your transmission. If the former is your case, with a warm engine in park, emergency brakes set, level ground...check your transmission fluid level on the dipstick ( it should be labeled) the checking xxxx mark at the top represents full when the fluid level is covering it. Unlike the engine oil, the xxxx represents 1 pint, not 1quart.

CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID SOUND LIKE VECHICLE SLIPPING DUE TO LACK OF FLUID. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID ON DIP STICK. WHILE ENGINE COLD FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD FULL MARK.CRANK ENGINE LET VECHICLE IDLE TO WARM.THEN HOLD FOOT ON BRAKE SHIFT THROUGH ALL GEARS FEW TIMES CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU GET TO FULL MARK.IF YOU HAVE THE TRANSMISSION WITH NO DIP STICK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER. YOU NEED 7 QUARTS OF TRANSMISSION FLUID.BUY DEALERSHIP TRANSMISSION PAN GASKET ITS THICKER MADE DIFFERENT WONT LEAK FLUID. THE TRANSMISSION GASKETS AT AUTO PARTS STORES TOO THIN LEAK FLUID BAD.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 sport 4x4 and the transmission slips between first and second gear, I have replaced the filter and fluid and am still experiencing the slip, what could be the cause?


Most important is making sure the trans is full, especially after doing a
trans service, since the torque convertor needs to be under a load when filling it, to completely be full. If you had the vehicle running and shifted
it through the gears while filling it up with tranny fluid, your good, but if
not, check it again.

E46 M problem changing gears.


Its not advisable to just add fluid.. You must first determine if it is low..

Maybe concider getting the fluid exchanged if you have allot of miles on it..

It could also be that the syncronizer is beging to fail..

Hope this helps !!

A fluid & filter change may be required, if you've already checked & confirmed fluid level is proper. With price of getting a new or rebuilt transmission, it may be wise to have it scanned for problems as well, at a reputable shop.

Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.


Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.
