Slipping Gears

A transmission that is slipping can make it seem as though your engine is racing, even though the problem is a slipping transmission lagging behind. This is a common problem, but it’s difficult to diagnose due to the number of factors that can cause a transmission to act this way. Low fluid, poor vacuum and a defective shift cable are just a few reasons why your transmission might be slipping.

    Thanks for these information, but what about the car move to 25 mph and then not shifting?
    Kind regards

      I would need to see the car before I can comment. This could be several things from electrical to internal damage.

    2006 Acura TL 3.2; I had the transmission replaced. The car gave a code to have the APP sensor replaced. I replaced the APP sensor and filter. Installed a new battery with an oil change. A week later it started to slip. Car would go into drive and reverse but after a few minutes once the fluids reached a certain temperature the car would not go into drive or reverse. Allowed the car to sit for 10 minutes and I am able to place the car in drive and reverse once again. Place a tester and was given a code for the vacuum modulator. Will a bad vacuum modulator cause the tranny not to shift when heated?

      Not actually but it sounds like you have a lot of trash in the pan if you even have a pan. It sounds like the filter is getting stopped up and restricting fluid flow. If you have a pan have it remved and check the contents.

        2006 acura transmission does not have a pan, but there is a small filter that the fluid flows through that I can replace.
