You may not be able to fix it, your ride is fifteen years old. But that is the worse case scenario. You can check the trany fluid level and color first. It should read full with the engine hot and the color should be like maraschino cherries. Has it been longer then two years since the last filter change, it could be due? Also sometimes a trani issue can be caused by a drive-ability problem. A restriction in the exhaust, a clogged fuel and/or air filter, poor compression, or a problem with the fuel system or injector/s. Does that help? Let me know.

Reving up when in gear driving

check your trans fluid, if its been a while flush it and change the filter if its reving and your speed doesnt change (slipping) if your speed changes check the TPS and speed sensors on the trans as well when you change fluid.

Tansmission slips

When you say the trans fluid is fine, is it a clear reddish color? does it smell burnt? also does your check engine light come on at all? how many miles are on the car? GM usually recommends a trans fluid flush at 100k miles under normal driving conditions and at 60k miles under more severe driving conditions. it sounds like there may be an internal problem with the bands or the pressure may be low. I would recommend taking the car to GM dealer for a better diagnosis as it sounds like it will continue to slip when it gets to normal operating temperature and it will get worse in the future. another option is to add 2 bottles of Lucas trans fix (48 ounces total) to the trans fluid but you will need to pump out that much fluid if the trans fluid is already full so you don't over fill it. the lucas trans fluid additive does work pretty good unless their is serious internal damage already done. Good luck!

Trans slips replaced still slips

  • check your "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor" ECTS, make sure all your connections on the transmission are secured. I would try a bottle of Seafoam, or some Transmission cleaner (as a last resort), or some LubeGard from your auto parts store.
  • There like several types of it, check the website for the specifices on which one to use. I've heard Transmission guys, swear by this stuff, that it will fix a lot of problems.
    But I wouldn't try it on a CVT transmission, or any kind of transmission that has a CVT belt drive system.

When taking off from a stop in drive Transmission Slipping

If this is an auto transmission what has happened is the belts in the transmission are worn, by selecting manually first you are using a belt that most of the time does not get used. Drive usually selects the highest ratio which in turn causes smoother take offs. If putting in the Lucas Trans fix did not help it won't be long before the tranny goes completely

When driving at 45-55mph the "d" on the dash that indicates the gearshift is in drive will suddenly dissapear. This is the indication that when I come to a stop light the transmission will now slip trying...

It's possible there is an electronic fault or a more serious internal mechanical condition causing the transmission to slip as it warms up. After parking for a bit the transmission cools down and often they will work better for a while until they warm up again. To start with I would have the transmission controller checked to see if there are any service codes and then have it test driven by a transmission specialist when the problem is occuring to get his opinion on it. It does sound a lot like a slipping clutch pack from what you describe however which would require the transmission to be removed to fix the problem. Good luck and hope this helps out a bit!

no but a low fluid level could cause a slip telling the ecm there is a slip top it off then clear the code and drive a few miles if this code comes back i would say there is internal damage to the tranny

The automatic transaxels in Hyundai Vehicles are electronically controlled by the transaxel range switch and the various solenoids inside the trans. The only 'mechanical' control is the shifter cable connected between the shifter inside the vehicle & its connection to the trans range switch on top of the transmission. Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular powertrain management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Transmission Component Slipping (TCC Stuck off)

code p 1870 refers to transmission component slipping
That can be from dirty oil or a clutch pack or band slipping or low oil pump pressure in the transmission
you say that it occurs on highway driving after 2 hours and that slipping will add friction heat to the transmission oil bringing on the oil temp light
take it to an accredited transmission professional service center that works on your make of vehicle , have the oil changed which require the pan removal
at the same time that will allow the adjustments to be done
when reassembled and refilled , have a pump pressure test done

Automatic Transmission Problems

  1. Check the transmission fluid level, if it's low, you have a leak & Look for fluids that have leaked on the ground below the transmission. Check the transmission case as well. Fluid can leak from seals, gaskets, fluid cooler and lines. Pinpoint the exact source of the leak to make proper repairs.
  2. Place a few drops of transmission fluid on a white paper towel. Red or light brown fluid that spreads easily over the towel is in good condition. Dark brown or black fluid that is gooey or thick fluid needs replacing to allow proper pressure and lubrication within the transmission.
  3. Replace the fluid filter to ensure it's in good working order. Check the old filter for metal shavings, which are a sign of wear and require a fluid flush.
  4. Look at your check engine light to verify it has not come on. If the check engine is on, take the car to a mechanic who can pull the code and pinpoint the problem. Electronic transmissions can detect even small faults in operation, and you may want to drive the car to verify that the problem was not a one-time or erroneous error.
  5. Seek the assistance of a professional if the car is no longer going into gear, slipping out of gear while driving or a substantial amount of fluid is leaking. Fixing a transmission problem on your car early can save you money and help keep you on the road for a long time to come.
