The obvious cheap fix solutions would be checking and changing transmission fluid, and checking and replacing transmission fluid filter. If you do all this and it continues to slip, the next fix would be removal and cleaing of the valve assembly, a detriorated filter can clog the valve assembly and cause it to duplicate the symptons of a failing transmission, but it is a last resort next to rebuilding and replacing the transmission. Hope this helps.

Yes sometimes the bands can be tighten up by a qualified Transmission person.or it could be a shallow pump pressure from your fluid pump or even a linkage adjustment..?

I have a 96 camaro and I need to replace my carrier bearing. Where can I find one?


I am not sure your car has a carrier bearing, but if it did it would be located on the drive shaft between the transmission and rear end of the car.

Automatic toyota celica doesn't like changing gear


There is a couple of things to check for here and to also be warned about. I do not know the mileage of your vehicle but I have done a bunch of transmission jobs where the customer changed their fluid and it caused the transmissions to start acting weird due to age and mileage. Not saying that is what is wrong just something to keep in mind.
The other thing is to make sure you have installed the proper fluid, proper weight and make sure it is not over full.
The symptoms you are explaining sound like it is possible that you may have over-filled your transmission fluid causing it to burn off and cause slipping.
Let me know if that helps at all. Also feel free to write back on this post with an update or if you have any questions about the same thing.

1996 Camaro. Putting out code P1870: Transmission Slipping. Transmission fluid changed absout a month ago. How can this problem be fixed?


The problem is usually caused bo wear in the valve body of the transmission. Transgo makes a kit to repair this. Can be purchased from a transmission parts supplier. You have a 4L60E transmission. The slip is not much but the computer will see it and cause high line pressure that will break parts.

2nd gear slips going in and out of 2nd


If 2nd gear slips a lot, the clutch for that gear is probably worn out. A rebuild of the transmission is recommended.

96 grand prix slipping transmission


Once it starts slipping in all gears it needs a kit. You need a hoist to get the thing out and back in. If you are looking for a low buck fix many junkyards will sell you a used one and put it in. They are almost always cheaper than a "Transmission Shop". If you have the tools and want to do it yourself buy a service manual for the car from eBay or Amazon or a former Pontiac dealer and have at it. It's not all that difficult with a hoist but it is still along day.
