Q: Rough and slipping automatic trans

asked by on

I have a bad problem with the automatic transmission in my 2006 Chevrolet Impala slipping and generally not being a very good transmission. This car is at 85,000 miles now and I have already replaced the torque converter once before. If this is the same problem, then should I be inspecting for bigger issues in the drivetrain?
