If the transmission is actually slipping, a replacement with a good unit should do the trick. But transmission problems can be complicated, especially with the current electronically controlled units, and diagnosis should be done by someone with experience in that field. Otherwise you could end up replacing a lot of expensive parts that you don’t need. You can have that done at your convenience by contacting Your Mechanic. They will send a technician to your home or office to check out your transmission problem and let you know what it will take to fix it.
