Did a search and came up with nothing so here it goes....

About a month ago my transmission started making a noise about 30 MPH and then it quit making it after a few days. Well it did it again today and it feels like the tranny was slipping a little bit. Driving back to my house it was stuck on about 3800 RPM's (at 45 MPH) for 1/2-3/4 mile or so. I let off the gas pedal and it stayed at 3800 RPM and stayed the same when I pressed it to the floor....never moved at all. What is wrong with it do you all think? :confused: :confused:

Incase you were wondering all the other gauges are working perfectly when this happened. I need to get an idea of what is wrong so it can be fixed as this is my daily driver.

My mechanic said he'd give it a good going over & he's had it since about 11:00 AM yesterday. Hopefully, I'll have it back and fixed today. I can never win....everytime I have money something always comes up :( I'll let you know what he says it is...


Darrin: if he can't figure it out soon then I will give you a call. Thanks....

Its finally fixed. Somehow most of my transmission fluid leaked out since I checked it at the beginning of October. Got a rebuilt tranny (with 28K) and installed since the old one was too messed up. It helps having someone in the family that is a mechanic. :D

Thanks for offering the help Darrin. If anything comes up again you will be getting a call. :D
