Transmission problem
1993 Chevy Astro 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 120, 00 miles

The transmission in my Astro has just begun to slip, but only in the " D" gears. It doesn't slip in 1 or 2, or in reverse. Trans. Fluid looks good, doesn't smell burnt, and the level may be a little bit high.
Any suggestions on what I can do to keep this thing movong a little bit longer?
Thanks, Bill

Hi Is it slipping in 4th or OD? Will it not slip if in 3rd?
Maybe a shift solenoid or torque convertor solenoid.
A scan of trans would tell if solenoids and sensors good.
Hope this help
Thanks for donate

Thanks for your reply. It slips only in OD and D, 2, 1 and reverse are fine. I drained some fluid out (it was a little overfilled), but that didn't help. How do I " scan" my transmission? Does that need to be done at a trans. Shop?

Scannig must be done at a repair shop that has the equipment.
