If the tranny is slipping and it's an automatic it's time to rebuild it or replace it with a rebuilt from a good tranny rebuilder with an exchange unit. That's about the only option you have here.

I had the same problem with my Jeep.If this is happening more when the weather is cold you need to add a quart of Lucas trans fluid to trans.Take a quart of your trans fluid out and add the Lucas fluid.It should help the problem.You can also have the bands on your trans adjusted being that it says so in the service manual.Find a good trans shop that will service your trans instead of replacing it.Good Luck

2001 kia sephia slips out of gear. Trouble codes P1500, P1624, P0740.


Low fluid or too much ATF? (foaming it up and killing bearings)

p07xx is tranny DTC codes. (errors)
TCC lockup failure. (the TCM commanded the lock and
the tail shaft sensor did not rise in RPM
that is the engine RPM does not match tail RPM or 1:1 ratio.
which is LOCK ratio.

1500 is speed sensor , reads wrong,
No Vehicle Speed Signal to TCM.

1624 means.
MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM.
the means simply the Tcm SAW and error and sent that error up stream to ECM. creating 1500.
remember the ECU never knows what part is bad.
NEVER ! it only knows, the tests failed. (monitors)
the first thing i do is find out which VSS failed.
on some cars there are 2 to 5
the first speed sensor is RPM does the scan tool show correct engine RPM? y/n
if yes,
does the scan-tool show correct MPH? sensor 2.
y/n if not fix that first.
the TCM function (tranny brain must not be lied to, in this order)
engine RPM , MPH.
and last the tranny its self as VSS (rpm) sensors. 1 to3.
my guess, (too lazy to look it up) has 1 sensor on the tranny tail.
if all is good and 1500 means VSS 2 tranny tail is fibbing.
then its one of 3 things.
(all others good)REMEMBER the TCM does comparisons to all speed sensors to shift the car correctly so the front sensor count first. then last the rear.
VSS2 lies. this is bad bad tranny (slips) bad wires to VSS2 or bad VSS2.
most TCM go to limp home when the tranny slips to stop burning up the clutch packs. may skip gears too.

now what does slips out of gear mean. a neutral FLARE?
or down shifts,
if the tranny ever slips. this is bad news.
if it does slip 1500 is only the warning that it did
it say RPMs go out of control and threw 1500 pronto.

Try to think(sic) like a TCM what would you do if the tranny malfs.
answer, throws codes.
and goes to limphome, if necessary, (FSM show these facts)
so does alldata dot com
what i do is try to get tranny to slip. using all gears.
if it slips ,its bad.
The TCM can not run a slipping tranny.
the TC does slip, but the TCM has that all figured out. (modeled)
not locked, and locked it must not.
good luck and do ask questions.

Tranny problems will run for short time after startup then stop moving ,motor will still run but car wont move let it sit for some time and then it will move again


first of all, check condition of tranny fluid. if it is brown or smells burnt the clutch in tranny are slipping. if the fluid is ok and at normal on stick. then change the fluid and tranny filter. this may help. have a good one !! but if it still slips, tranny is in need of repair or replaced.

I am planning to buy a nissan maxima.but the seller said the ABS.TCS and slip lights are on which is making the tranny to slip a bit. is this true. 1. why would the tranny slip? 2. why also are those...


can be an expensive problem the abs and tcs module under the hood is probably going bad the tranny slipping is probably what is causing the othe lights to come on. the tcs stands for traction control system if it feels a slip in the tranny like on a gravel road or wet road it assists the vehicle into getting better traction.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Tranny slips & wont shift past 2nd gear


Ok, you will need to first check the fluid level in this transmission. if the trans is sealed, you will need to take to the dealer for a fluid check. assuming that the fluid level is proper, this will usually be caused by a faulty transmission control module and faulty shift solenoids as well. these devices are located on and inside the trans and i recommend testing each device for flaws.


Most slips are the result of gear ware but, the solenoids and TCM will cuse this issue as well.
