After 100,000 miles never flush one. Only change fluid in pan and filter.

This problem is caused by disparity between Vehicle speed and Transmission RPM preset for that speed. Transmission automatically shifts gears smoothly when car reaches a preset speed, set by the manufacturer. If either the shift solenoid is not responding or the Transmission is slipping JERK will be experienced. First check fluid levels and change fluid if it has not been changed in the last 45,000 miles. Since you just bought the car you have no knowledge. Do not do Transmission flush if you have over 100,000 miles. Only do drain and fill with Honda Fluid. Only Drain and fill is recommended so as not to wash away/disturb the friction material by power flushing. During drain and fill add a bottle of Torgue multiplier fluid available in Auto part stores. If this does not work then take it to a Transmission shop for them to diagnose.

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.

When hot trany will not work in all gears have just replaced filter gasket


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you haven't replaced the transmission fluid recently then now is the time. If the fluid is burnt, the transmission tends to fail specially on hot temp. Please do check the transmission fluid first as a first course of action.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

The error code is basically confirming what you have already found that the transmission is slipping, specifically that when the torque converter locks up on a gear that there is not a significant drop in engine revs i.e. slippage (the lack of engaged drive whilst the transmission is shifting between gears allows the engine to rev a little more freely and the sensor looks for the reduction on engine revving when a gear is engaged). First check the transmission fluid on the transmission dip stick; do this with the car running in 'park'. Firstly is reading 'full'? if not consider topping it up via the transmission dip stick tube. Secondly what does the fluid look like? It should be healthy pink, if brown and burnt smelling this indicates wear and old fluid and this will require a drain and replacement of transmission fluid along with the transmission filter. The torque converter clutch brake band has worn down or it may be that it can be adjusted to compensate for this wear. Adjusting such things should left to the specialists. If the car is still fresh from the dealer I would expect them to repair/fix the fault as a good will measure. This is purely a wear issue and not one due to abusive use of the car.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission slips in overdrive


sounds like a possible shift solenoid. If it's due for a fluid change, do that and add a container of lucas trans conditioner. Likely you have a drain plug on the pan so if the fluid was recently serviced, just drain a quart out and replace with the additive, then top off.
If the condition does not change within a week, likely you will need better diagnosis from a reputable trans shop.

Most likely a fluid change and the new Dexron 6 trans fluid will cure this issue, make sure to do a full service, fluid and filter. Note, Dexron VI replaces all previous Dexron fluids and I know from personnel experience it works great, longer trans life and smoother shifts and less problems like yours.
