    My transmission slips between 2-3 gear, its like it grabs on to something and loses grip and then engages gear, what could this be? Tranny fluid is correct ,not burnt but slight bubbles in it

    Anyone? And also when i check the fluid when its warming up right when it hits 80°c it is right inthe middle of hot and cold lines, but when driven for 30 minutes and checked it is scattered all over the place and looks way to high!

    If it is slipping it may be worn out?

    When i remove the vacuum to the transmission it shifts fine from 2-3 gear and punches me in the ass when it shifts to 4 gear, anyone?

    You could have a vacuum leak to the pipes to the box.
