asked by on

Given the amount of miles you have on that car your transmission would need to be checked to see if it is not low on fluid. Afterwards, it can be overhauled or replaced as needed. Most of the time it can be overhauled unless there is internal case damage that is found when it is taken apart and inspected.

If you'd like to get a second opinion about this, feel free to contact a certified mechanic who can diagnose your cars driving symptoms. Once this is done the problem can be pinpointed and the necessary repairs can be made.
