Yeah, the transaxle, although electrics are involved, this type of transmission is much like any automatic, prone to the same needs. It is quite possible you may only need a filter and fluid service. The unit works with fluid, and the fluid is drawn through a filter, a transmission service replaces this fluid and filter(which has an 'o' ring, and in this manner you can see if there is any unusual metal shavings or if it just needs a filter and fluid change, like your engine. This way, you can better understand what's wrong, and how to proceed. It will not hurt the trans. And it just may be the answer. You can ask for a transmission service at most repair or service centers, or if you'd rather do it yourself, it is not a very hard job. But messy. If I can be of any further service, just let me know. OK lonniemay. Got my fingers crossed that may be all it requires. Sure, if your type of transmission(41TE overdrive) has a problem while in Drive, its losing pressure, unable to apply its power causing drive loss, it's usually from this. A good of place to start as any other. There are other possible problems, but getting these basics out of the way just may get you back on the road. K?
