Transmission problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 51500 miles

the transmission seems to be slipping. Press the accelerator and the tack revs to about 3k rpm but the car does not move forward right away. Seems to happen more when engine is cold. My son has it away at school and drives a few miles to campus each day. Can it wait another month before I get it fixed or does it need to be done right away?

Do you

It is hard to say if it will last. As far as the problem, I find it hard to believe the trans is bad at 51K. But rather, it could be something as simple as low trans fluid or a sensor. Has the check engine light come on?
