Is my transmission slipping?

My car will be going smoothly and then all of a sudden jump up in rpms. But its not consistant, I can drive my car one day and it will be perfectly normal but then again i can drive it another day and it will do it a lot. Also when im going down a fill and coasting sometimes it will feel like its not coasting right and sometimes ill actually lose a little speed instead of gaining it. My car is an Automatic 1994 Ford Mustang. Is my transmission slipping? Does my Transmission fluid need changed? I dont know what the problem is, do you?

when's the last time you changed the A/T fluid? if the RPM is increasing w/o vehicle speed change then bumping into a gear that would mean that the trans is slipping. my car does it once in a while, but it doesn't mean that my trans is slipping.

if you went over 35K miles w/o changing the A/T fluid my guess is don't bother changing it. you're going to have to run that transmission till its dead. i know, expensive to pay for but just buy a new mustang for same price as the repair order.

I would start by having the tranny pan dropped and putting in a new filter and replacing the lost fluid and see what happens.

Check your transmission fluid to make sure its not low, or if you have the cash take it in for a transmission flush.
