so my transmission is slipping that i know i need to have rebuilded. The issue is that when i turn on the ignition the car starts but when i let it idle the revs are flutuating and sometimes eventually the engine stops.
what i have checked so far is all the hose connections in the engine bay. All hoses connected. also i have checked the airflow meter hose which is located around the air intake system. i found nothing wrong with the hose and it is connected.
