Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

My transmission is slipping, and went out, but then started driving again. It has 85,000 miles. Could it be something less serious than the transmission?

Probably not. When your tranny starts slipping like that it's usually a sign of it getting ready to go out on you at any given time. You could also check the level of your transmission fluid because that could also cause slippage as well. Good luck.

02 bonneville transmission slips to false nuetral after warmed up. Shut car off for a minute will drive again for a short time. ?????

Your transmission is probably going into "limp" mode. This happens when the car's computer senses something wrong that is potentially very bad. It is your cars way of telling you to take it to the dealer so they can read the error codes in your computer.

What are the causes for sienna transmission slipping

You have a failed transaxle--- your done

That will be a $3,500 repair

I do not have the time here to explain the answer why

The main reason transmissions slip-- is that no one changes

the trans fluid at all or every 2 to 3 years (that is a death sentence)

The fluids main job is to remove heat

It breaks down after two years & so goes your your slipping

clutches that get fried

90 % of all transmission problems can be prevented

If you drive correctly & most folks don\'t

If you change the fluid & no one does

If you stop using it when you first notice something & have

it checked out,you have some hope it will go for a few years

Transxles only go about 85,000 miles

Most all new transmissions have known faults, the manufacturers

do nothing about it ,that gets resolved with updates in the field

or aftermarket,not at a dealer though- seldom

Your vehicle is 14 years old

I would guess your on your second trans

Only rear drive last for 18 years or 200,000 & not

many-- as they never see that new fluid

There are NO Sealed transmissions & the dealers have

nothing special going on there, on any subject

You never need a dealer- unless you care to part

with extra money

I bought a 2001 honda odessey with 73000 miles the transmission gave up. i have it rebuild now it is 83000 miles transmission starting to slip

No transaxles make 100,000 miles

What your saying, including the rebuild
is common

Asian transaxles & all Van type vehicles,
are something you don't want to own

I used to own a trans shop,so I will leave
you with that

Can't fix slipping,drive a couple of days,
& your pulling the trans out again

Transmission slipping making noise

If u keep it below 25 miles an hour you should make it, but this loud noise worries me, this noise means something is coming apart, if it does it may lock the trans up, so keep the speed down.

During driving the transmission switches to neutral (Lexus RX300)

Your tranny need to be repaired at once. The tranny is slipping. Some Lexus owners do have the similar problem including myself.
