My trans slips when I first start it up for the day and put it in reverse or drive. It does it here and there throughout the day as well.

Hi this could be from a worn clutch or oil leaking onto the clutch plate

V70 poured new Dex3 auto trans in. Reverse gear stops working after a few days equal 500km, but all forward are still ok.


Sounds like your transmission is going bad. If your transmission is slipping only in drive or forward gears, then it could be just that it is low on fluid, but when reverse starts to slip it usually means rebuild/replace transmission.

Good luck

95 accord v-tec was slipping when warmed up put a used tranny in and did the same thing then the next day it wont even go anywhere in drive revs like it is in neutral surely it not two trannys with the...


is this a transmission question
the A/T will not do what.
there are like 100 faults symptoms on any A/T
tell what it does right and wrong?

my guess is all forward gears and reverse are dead
and sure it slips, if in 1st gear or REV.and ar dont move
and engine is at 3000 rpm ,its slip city
this transmissing is shifted electronically
the Model of the tranny ends in E, means that.
so the first test (all this ever word is in the FSM under slips)
you see if the TCM (tranny brain) has errors stored.
that is in the FSM. (factory service manual)
most old cars with TCM have flash codes for engine and tranny separate. so do that.
you do know the transmission must be perfectly grounded
or the TCM will not be able to send commands to the trans , right?
seen many cars with the Factory trans ground strap missing. too many.
if the TCM is happy, we then make sure that
the shift solenioid lines have the correct logic, to get in to say
drive or Reverse (you pickone,)
then measure it with a voltmeter, (all this is in the FSM)
make 100% sure the voltmeter neg. lead id ground to the transmission casing (so i can see the ground fail)
i take my 3 or 4 readings, for each sol. line.
and say they all pass. 0v,. 0v , 12v test. that means
the TCM has told the Trans what to do,
if it trans slips the trans is bad or the clutch is dry or bad.

in fact, ive made up a switch box with toggle switches,
that plugs in to the tranny and and shift it like a manual trans, all day long. 1 switch for each sol. line
100% sure way to prove what end is bad. TCM or gear box.

ask questions.

My Transmission was operating fine and then out of no where it just fell out of gear and would not go into reverse or drive. When I start it in the morning I can drive it for about 5 minutes and then the...


No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is broken.
Soft shifting, gradual performance degradation: Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R.
Put a line pressure gauge (or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.490" boost valve (easy fix in pan).
Thank you for using fixya and good luck. Transmission failure is common when you have the transmission flushed rather then having it serviced by dropping the transmission pan and letting the fluid drain on it's own.

Trany slips at 2500 rpm when in overdrive and at 3200 rpm in drive


Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).
Secondly, put a line pressure gauge (or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).

I have a 1997 chevy 1500. The Trans (4l60e) is bad i think


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.

Slow, slipping or no reverse: “lo-reverse” clutches are worn out, fluid leak in the reverse apply circuit, or broken sunshell. It is possible to remedy a fluid problem by removing the checkball from its cage in the case in the rear of the trans may help (must remove valvebody), or adding a high-viscosity additive such as Lucas Transmission additive or other seal restorer product. May also have worn boost valve (can replace in the pan).

1-2 or 2-3 shift is slow/soft above part throttle: Trans is on its way out. R&R
Good luck and start with checking your transmission fluid level. Thank you for using Fixya

My transmission is slipping oil when you floor it

Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should bearound 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be atleast 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum.

Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to help you get your transmission running 100% again soon and thank you for using Fixya.

The best up grade you can do for your transmission is to replace the servos with a Corvette Servo, there go for around $45.00 and can be replaced without removing the transmission pan and also replacing the Boost Valve with a 0.490 or 0.500 Boost Valve. The other inprovment that will help your transmission would be adding a B&M Shift-plus Electronic Shift Improvement kit, part # 70380 Cost around $45.00 if not less. http://www.bmracing.com/SPECIALS/ShiftPlus-electronic-Shift-Improver-for-GM

Sounds like the overdrive is stuck,or the lock up converter,look for a (I think it is a four wire connector)on the transmission,unplug it,and see if it will drive,you just will not have over drive,let it cool down first,or it will not come out of lock up.

Why does the transmission slip when it gets warm


Soft shifting, gradual performance degradation: Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).

Secondly, put a line pressure gauge ($55 shipped on Ebay, or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).

Good Luck and keep me posted.

Where is the fuse for the tranny it takes off in 3 gear it is a 4 speed auto i blow a fuse or some thing thank you bob


The trans has a built in limp mode if it detects a problem. More than likely there is something else wrong,

Try to reset it first. Turn the vehicle on and off 3 full times and then start it and see if it starts out in first. If you then fell it lurch and go back into limp mode have it scanned to see. It could be the trans computer, a sensor or a hard problem internal to the trans. Hope this helps.

28 years rebuilding trans and factory trained by chrysler on that trans.,
