    If you decide to go to Jiffy Lube, make sure that the store has cameras where they perform the work. That's your guaretee that they actually perform the work.

My 1997 Jimmy runs fine in idle when I take off the vechile is fine until it reaches 20 mph it won't accelerate and the rpms increase up to 3000 but no speed. What's wrong it's a 4 wheel d


Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

You might have burned out the transmission plates, try getting the transmission out of the car and inspect the plates inside.

My transmission is slipping it just revs up when it gets to second gear i have a 1997 chevy lumina is it a shift solenoid or whats wrong with it i changed the fluid and the filter in my transmission and...


check your fluid level too much can be just as bad as too little,
too much fluid will cause fluid to foam,or have air bubbels i belive the turm is cavatate,causing transmission to slip, and overheat
hope you get it fixed

Slipping transmission


It just needs serviced. It could be Loose bands or just need adjustments and a Torque converter needing service. If the fluid level is good when checked then take it to a transmission shop and have it checked. It could be something as simple as a Fluid change and Filter replacement.

check the transmission solonoid..

you will need to get a diagnostic done to find out if thats the problem.. most likely its that,, or the transmission belt that needs changing.. in eighter case you will need someone with diagnostic machine to scan the cars computer for that!!
