It started with loosing 4th and feeling as though in neutral so I turned off overdrive and was able to catch the lower gears and limp home going 40-50 without it reving to much. But whenever overdrive is on it goes into neutral over 25 mph unless O/D is off I can go faster but I know it can't be good. Just bought this car. 2 for 2 with both vehicles we bought hoping for a vehicle with a little bigger engine that could make it up the mountains with ease. Fluid smells spent. I want to change it but don't know if its pointless and I'll need to change the transmission. 14 qts is a lot of wasted mercon transfluid plus filter, but if it could fix it that would be great because I know transmissions shift with pressure changes or something and with spent fluid that may be it. I'm thinking the upper solenoids could be bad or gummed up but I don't know anything about transmissions (yet) thanks
We're stuck at my moms until we can get one of these fixed and can't afford a shop but have enough tools to drop and take the transmission apart or swap, but figure it could be something simpler. Thanks thanks thanks
have the same problem?
