Hi,

there could be a number of reasons for this. firstly, when did you last change the transmission oil? if it's been 15000 miles ago, then change it. Before you do, put in some seafoam transtune to break down any gum and varnish build up.

Leave it in there for at least a few days running the engine and changing the gear selector.

Then disconnect the battery for a few hours. after reconnecting it, take a drive and see what happens. disconnecting the battery resets the TCM.

If problem persists, then it could beeither the transmission cooler is blocked, or restricted into and out of the radiator. this could be causing the tranny to get too hot and shut down. Another reason could be that the clutch plates are worn out. It doesn't sound like the type of symptom the shift solenoid pack would cause, but it could the input speed sensor too.

My guess is old transmission oil and a biuld up of varnish on the plates. you'll need to get the transmission cleaned by using seafoam transtune, then get a transmission service to change the fluid and filter. this will likely cause the transmission to go into limp mode and get stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear until you disconnect the battery and reset the TCM. You'll find the electrical components will react much better if you do this. If the problem persists, then it looks as though it could be plates, or restricted cooling through the radiator.

One thing you can do is to take the car to o'reillys and plug their diagnostic into the cars computer. This should provide you with the fault codes if their are any. look up the codes and you'll find a path to solving the problem. You can call the service shops at the manufacturers dealerships for the explanation of the codes, or google them. Lastly, before throwing parts at the car, if problem doesn't get better, take it into a trusted transmission repair shop for a road test.

Good luck

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.

My transmission slips about a hour of driving it or whan it gets hot. i can turn the van off and restart it and it seems to be ok . i can drive it again until it gets hot.


Do an old fashion transmission filter change and new fluid.

DO NOT use those transmission flush machine. It will damage trans.

Order the transmission filter kit and drop the pan.

Add the ATF to the right level.


A Caravan transmission is problematic. 80K-140K miles.

If you haul a lot of payload then the trans can be down at early as 75K!

I have a 94 Mitsubishi Diamante ES. A month ago I noticed that transmission was getting stemming hot after driving on a high way. I let the car cool down and then nothing happened for about two weeks....


theres a good chance you need a replacemnt transmission. Since this problem is real your only option to get it professionaly inspected . We can guess, but a guess isn't going to fix it.
