Question about 1994 Mazda 323
I took my car back. My technician experienced my car's problem when he do the test drive last weekend. He said the problem happens after driving 20 minutes, and engine and transmission got hot. He told me the problem is in transmission, eventhough he does not know what is wrong exactly in transmission. He put "Lucas transmission fix" into transmission fluid to see if the problem can be fixed. His confidence level seems low. From the website: "Lucas Transmission Fix stops slipping, hesitations or rough shifting in worn transmissions.Lucas Transmission Fix stops slipping, hesitations or rough shifting in worn transmissions." My technician told me if the problem still there after 200 KM drive, he needs to replace my transmission (since re-build will cost the same amount of money). Will try to test drive again this weekend. Anything else I can do for my problem?

Hi, countrycurt0. I just tested the case #2. The car speedup significantly, when the RPM increase after I giving full gas pedal. I tried twice, same result. How do you think? Does it rule out the transmission problem?
But, after giving full gas pedal, that problem comes up (with gas pedal unchanged, the RPM goes up quickly, and drop back quickly). I think this is the scenario that the problem can be replicated. Any hint to you?
Thank you so much for your help!

Hi, I checked the transmission fluid level. It is a bit high. Read an article on web, it says high trans fluid level may cause transmission malfunction. My technician took some fluid out to lower the level. Not sure it will fix the problem yet. Will let you know.
Do you think high trans fluid level may cause the problem I experienced?
Thanks for your help.
