IS THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING?

1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Transmission problem
1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

Hi. I have a problem with the transmission on this car. While the car has high miles, the transmission is a reman with less than 100k on it. The problem I experiencing, is that every time you make a sharp left turn, the transmission acts like it goes into neutral, as the wheels lose all power and the motor revs up. It occassionaly does it from a stand still or on right turns as well. When it does finally re-engage, it acts and shifts normally with no grinding or slipping. Could a bad transmission oil pump be suspect? Bad transaxle? Please help me!

Thanks!

Make sure the trans is full. Let me know what you find.

The transmission is full. I have also added TransEx. That seemed to help for a short amount of time, but soon went back to what it is now.

Thanks
