can auto tranny slip?

Hey is it possible for an auto tranny to slip like a clutch would?

depending on how bad, does that mean its going to go, is there a way to fix it without buying a new tranny/ stop it from slipping or breaking any further ?


thanks guys

Have you changed/flushed any of your transmission fluid since you've had the car. What year and how many miles do you have?

Yes and its much more serious.... Either the oil pump isnt providing enough pressure to shift the gear or the clutches and bands are starting to slip....

how long will it last? a while if i dont beat on it i assume, i can swap out the tranny when i can afford to buy a new one.

so there are no preventive measures ?? or anything i can really do?

It could last a while, and could die soon. Change the fluid and drive easy. The bad thing about AT clutches is the friction material is very thin and once worn, thats it. I limped one around for a year before replacing it. Good luck

Maybe i'm wrong here but if i remember on my '00 Aero it did that (always) when the torque converter locked up, maybe i'm reading your description wrong though, usually the revs go up when it slips, not drop.

I was referring to the 4k to 3k drop part, the slipping then catching i'm not so sure about.

I had a bmw with auto tranny that slipped a little, and it went out about 4 minutes later. it slipped and then the next time I hit the gas, it slipped so bad i thought it was in Nuetral. I couldn't get it back into gear and had to pull off the highway with no acceleration available. It had to be rebuilt.

that was scary, trying to navigate my way off 787 during rush hour with only brakes and coasting.

well the rpms will rise fast and then all of a suddent they will drop 1k rpms so it would rise quick to 4k and then drop to 3k and then go back up to 4k, is this right?

We don't know. Is that what it is doing?

My 9-3 w/ auto trans drops down about 1000 rpm when the torque converter locks up in 4th gear. That is the opposite of slipping, its catching, locking up, etc.

The older 4 speed AT is not considered to be as robust as the 02-up A-W 5 speed model.

Have you pulled the dipstick to check the level, color, and smell of the fluid? Read your manual for proper fluid level check procedure first. The fluid should be full when read using the proper procedure; it should be pink and not smell burnt. If it is dark and smells burnt/fishy/etc, you likely have a problem. First step would be to try flushing the fluid and see if the slip persists.
