Ok, this morning I notice the transmission was slipping really badly when it shifted from 3rd to 4th. the RPMs would drop by about 500 and thengo back up to normal. It never use to do this and its definately not normal. Any sugestions?

The engine light's on again anyways so I'm taking it over to the dealer this afternoon, probably that F'in cam sensor again that broke 2 weeks ago.

what do you mean slipping? best way to find out is to run the car at 30mph go into fifth then floor the gas pedal. if the RPM goes up almost instantly with no dramatic increase in speed then your clutch is more likely to be slipping..

Yah no kidding. I'll see what I can do to check the oil in it. I'll just go easy on it and nurse it as long as I can. It's not slipping very badly, just acting a little funny.

do you notice it when you are going uphill or when speeding up to pass someone on the freeway? Do the rpms fluctuate up and down about 500 rpms? Have you been to the dealer yet?

hows your water pump?

Has it been replaced?

Watch your car temp, what happened to my tranny was car almost over heated, tranny i guess did, the tranny fluid was cooked and it melted my clutch pads.
