Im noticing the transmission is slipping when its shifting from 3rd to fourth gear. Is this because the transmission is bad?

Make sure the fluid is full and clean. It should be a translucent pinkish color. Also, have you ever had the transmission serviced? Finally, has the check engine light ever come on?

Based on your description, it sounds like one of the clutch packs has worn and causing a slip, but let me know about the questions I asked. Also, when you check the trans fluid, see if it has a burnt smell to it.
