I have 98 contour and just past 2 days the tranny starts to slip after 20 miles then when cool it runs fine for about same then slips again. I was told that I need to replace filter and fluid by friend as the fluid is very light brown its still clear but not red. More brown. Is this a hard job to do by yourself as im mechanically inclined but have never does the tranny fluid change but plenty of oils. And other parts changes. Is this a real fix or am I looking at a new tranny. I need get 1-2 more work trips in before I get cash and seein as im not a very wealthy person I need some help. And if possible what would a mech shop charge to replace fluid and filter. From what I understand it not that tough. Also price for rebuilt or replacement tranny on this model if anyone knows thanks a whole lot for your help.
BTW it just turned 100k miles
have the same problem?
