Here is the lowdown: I bought the car, had a trans flush done on it from the dealer. Mechanic said old fluid was BLACK. About three days later, I had the slippage problem at idle. Would only happen every now and then, not EVERY time I stop. Took it to a trans shop, said my trans is fine because it shifts perfectly, he said your torque converter is going bad so I had it replaced for 500 bucks. Got the car back yesterday and it is still doing the same thing every now and then. Could it be that the car is just getting used to a new TC and new fluid or do you suspect the dreaded trans overhaul? Keep in mind, this is only at idle or very very low speeds. Thoughts?
