Yes you will need a rebuild. just make sure that the fluid level is correct. i am assuming this is a higher milage car. when transmissions get older the friction material form the clutchs inside the transmission actually help hold and shift the gears. when you flush those out you have nothing to help the worn out clutches from slipping. your other option which would be cheaper is to get a junkyard transmission they are cheaper and you can buy extended warrantys for cheap money from a reputable salvage yard like LKQ. i hope this helps please leave me some posative feedback thanks.

Reset transmission

It could be the Powertrain control module (PCM) if you have an automatic transmission or the synchro if it's a manual one, in that case you would probably hear a grinding noise when shifting. As for the reset button, I did not hear of a such thing but you could try reading the code using a code scanner (I think you'll need the OBD2 connector one) and reset it. Check the sensor connectors on the trans for any looseness. Make sure you have enough oil in there as well, automatic trans work with hydraulic pressure....not enough hydraulic pressure mean no gear shifting. Hope I helped!

Transmission flush for a 2003 dodge dakota

If you were told not to change the fluid,
then the trans is burnt & needs a rebuild

I would never flush a trans,too much work to
disconnect lines & your asking for trouble doing
so, as well as possibly flushing debris where it shouldn't
be, like into the solenoids

If you never changed the fluid every 3 years the trans is
most likely done,only reason to be told not to change it

If you change it ,it will slip worse or start slipping

Keep driving it or pull it & rebuild it

I have a 2000 Cirrus with 48,000KM on it. Should I

before condemning the the trans and fluid, make sure all the engine and trans mounts are OK, If they are bad they create what seems to be harsh shifting! Chryslers are known for having problems after flushing. sometimes if there has been a battery drain or disconnect you sometimes need to flash the trans computers and modules, which needs to be done by shop with a compatible scan tool, hope this helps!

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?

1999 dodge ram truck automatic trans may be slipping, not sure??

I think you mean they told you that you need to replace the torque converter , which transfers the torque from the engine to the trans
it could be the torque converter but also could be the bands wearing down in the trans
