    Default Auto Transmissions

    My Titan is the first auto I've owned and I have a question. Will the need for new fluid cause it to slip? On my all my other vehicles, I changed transmission fluid regularly due to offroading. On my non jeep vehicles, I never kept them long enough for maintenance. It's at 71K and I have no prior service records.

    I've had vehicles that did. Usually if its low it'll slip when its cold, after it warms up it'll be okay. I would probably change the Fluid out though and get a new filter. Usually the filter and the gasket come together for $10-20. The filter maybe too dirty to pass fluid thro

    After checking fluid level and it is good, I've always changed fluid and filter on any AT with signs of slipping-sometimes this solves it unless you have a real mechanical problem and not a hydrolic one.
    I've heard good things about Luckus tranny additive but I havent used mine yet.

    yeah, 75,000 miles is a good interval to change the tranny fluid. i've had slippage issues too with low fluid.

    it only slipped once and it drove EXTREMELY slow. i turned it off immediately. when i turned it back on, the AT light went off and the check engine is still there. i guess i'll change the fluid and hope for the best.

    get the check engine light coded at an Auto Zone or somewhere else for free, maybe it'll clue you in on whatever happened; ie maybe some vacuume or electric snafu caysed the trany to hickup.

    I would only recommend this IF the mob is involved and at that point you can safely deny all knowledge, for insurance reasons of course

    your filter is most likely at the point that it is getting plugged up, it is a good idea to change it along with the fluid. plus you'll get to see if there is any small parts or chunks in the drain pan!
