Repair transmission slipp

There is no cheap fix for a slipping transmission. If it is an automatic transmission it will need rebuilt. If it is a manual transmission it will need a new clutch kit put in it.

My 2007 pt cruiser wont work in reverse

Try to add LUCAS OIL transmission anti-slipp additive. It helps smooth the shifting. If this helps you need to replace transmission fluid with the filter and add fresh fluid with Lucas oil additive ..

I would try an additive called trans ex. It is a cleaning type of liquid that smells just like lacquer thinner, wich works too. It does soften the rubber seals, I hope it helps ya. 60/40 chance it will

1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4 transmision slipps between first and secund gear

drop the transmission oil pan and drain it and replace the filter...
If you have over 100,000 miles and have never had a transmission flush before, don't do one now. just do a drain and fill. if that doesn't help, you might need a rebuild.

Occassionally it appears that my transmission is slipping at about bout 5 - 15mph it slipp for a slip second enough for my RPM to rise and than everything is ok again. is that a transmission problem?

well first check you transmission fluid if its low add fluid. and check undercar for small spots of fluid. transmission fluid is red in color. if its not a fluid problem try and remember if you are on a up grade or down grade the next time this happens. and yes when your transmission slipps you RMP will naturaly rise because the motor is not engauged with the tranny. and if your fluid is fine you may need to have a diagnostic test run to see if you have a sensor going bad on it. and if the fluid is low but you have no spots of fluid in driveway. it may not be leaking just low the car is over 10 yrs old and may have just used a little fluid over a few years. i hope this helps...

It slipps between first and second and slipps more between second and third.all other gears are fine.

Transmission needs looked at by a specilist. The repairs aren't something that you will be able to do.

Slips out of 1st and 5th

Have you checked your transmission fluid level and your transmission filter? That's a common cause of slippping.
