Ok what is wrong...

Hey guys,

My engine has been getting hot like I the point where I couldn't pull the oil stick... And my coolant appears to be fine and the heat gauge is in the middle.. Also my tranny has been slipping... Like I was driving today to test it and after an hour it started to slip from 1st gear! Can a tranny work for a lil and then slip and them work again? Then it stopped and it was fine... What is wrong with this car.. It burned my efi hose which I replaced thinking it was because of the hose... But I fixed it and it still seems to slip... Do I need a new tranny?!? Please help... Is there a way I can tell my tranny is bad? Is there a test mechanics do? Thank you but I'm flipping out!!

Re: Ok what is wrong...

I don't know what year your car is, but if it is a 94-95 you can have the transmission scanned. If it has a lockup converter it could be that it has failed causing the excessive slippage.
At any rate an automatic that slips most likely needs to be rebuilt.
