The warning for the transmission program indicates an issue with the transmission. Usually it is due to mechanical problems, but sometimes it can be due to an electrical issue. I recommend having the vehicle scanned and diagnosed.

If you think it slips at all,then it will have to come
out & be rebuilt

You can go to You Tube Video & if you know your tranmission
model look at the issues & see how they are rebuilt
If you type in ford transmissions on google, you can pick your
car & find it's trans unit model or number

Got 96 buick 3.8 4t60.e 4speed trans auto code p1870 trans sleep then i top;ed up fluid and reset dtc. if trans is still sliping what can i do next and may there be something i missed .thankyou

If you have transmission slippage and fluid level is correct, then you most likely will need to have the pump replaced at minimum and an overhaul of the transmission at the most extreme. Not a cheap repair in any case. If the fluid on the dipstick is brown, that indicates internal clutch wear. Good luck!
