Re: tranny problems

check tranny fluid level, make sure it is nice and hot and the engine running. Whens the last time you changed the fluid n filter. I would try and put a bottle of lucas trans additive in it and see if that helps any. How many miles are on your trans, the clutches may be worn or going

Re: tranny problems

Lucas is pretty good stuff for the trans. If you end up having a trans problem, it is worth a try to use the Lucas. It might buy you a little more time.
