There are a multitude of reasons why and automatic transmission will slip. It is possible that a bad speed sensor could cause the transmission to slip. However, it is also possible that a slipping transmission can cause sensor codes to be stored in the computer. I would ask for help from a certified transmission mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to see what needs to be serviced in your transmission.
