Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Transmission slip I own a 2003 Alero GLS 44,000 km. I can drive a few km before transmission starts to slip ie come to a stop or slow down around a corner and it acts as though it is out of gear. Garage has checked computer diagnostics with no sign and have replaced cellunoids. Still works for first few kms. then slips. Any thoughts?

The transmission is failing, it is losing hydraulic pressure either from a failed pump or a defective seal inside the transmission, by now the clutches are fried as well, so a tear down and rebuild is the only thing to do to fix this.

Tranny low on fluid. When you stop or turn it all goes to one side causing the problems.

did you have a transmission flush? because its bad for older cars to get flushed because the acids they use eat away the seals and mess up your transmission more...i would recomend using some transmission conditioner

Its possible that your transmissions Shift Solonoids could be acting erratically, either because they themselves are faulty, or the transmission's ECU is faulty, or maybe even the wiring between the two is somewhat faulty.

However it is also possible that your transmission's Speed Governor is holding too much pressure and doesn't realize it needs to downshift when you start slowing down.

Thirdly it is also possible that your Torque-Converter lockup may be siezed, or the wiring feeding it may be faulty.

Transmission repairs are usually somewhat pricey, and difficult to pinpoint, and fix, and I'm sorry to say that most of these causes to your problem really can't be checked without pulling the transmission out of the car, and disassembling it to see what the problem is.
