Slips from Drive to neutral at 35 mph.

Check the fluid and its level. If fluid smells burnt then clutches inside are slipping if fluid is red and smells ok then you will need someone to diagnose it, possibly a shift solenoid not engaging the 3-4 shift.

Trans slips when the trans warms up

Sounds like you have definitely an internal problem in the transmission if its slipping ...

It could have an electrical issue as well like a faulty PCM .

How could the mechanic say its fine if it slips.....
I would start by going to a different shop/mechanic and have them scan the data to see whats going on electrically..but i would think at this mileage and with it slipping you're probably going to be looking at an overhaul/replacement transmission.

Trans starts out fine, will upshift to 2nd while in OD position but will begin to slip at about 30-35 mph. From that point it will upshift if gear shift is placed in 2 position. Doesn't seem to go past...

well,whoever did the transmission needs to look at it again.It sounds like a solenoid problem internally in the transmission.or a plug,wiring,or vacuum leak

1994 ford tempo; vehicle upshifts late, won't shift until 35-40 mph after high reving fro 35 mph, then again at 65 mph after high reving from 55 mph to 65 mph.

Sounds like your transmission is on the fritz. Try changing the fluid and filter see if that helps. If that doesnt try a can of anti slip from any good parts place (Napa). If this dosent help it's time for a rebuild on the transmission

Myford2004f150 transmission slips when it gets to around 35 to40 mph 75000 miles

Trans Solenoid Pack-a possible.
I would stop driving it, until I figured it out.
You don't want to burn up the trans. I was in the trans business years ago.

The most inexpensive remedy would be a filter/fluid change. And don't scimp on them aymore.
