Q: Q: Transmission is slipping

asked by on

The transmission in my car is slipping.

I would first confirm that your transmission fluid is full and not leaking. I would recommend having an expert mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, perform a transmission fluid service if your fluid is low. However, if the fluid is full, then there is most likely an internal problem with your transmission and it will need to be rebuilt or replaced by a transmission shop.
