View Full Version : Transmission slipping at takeoff...

My transmission "feels" like it is slipping when accelerating from a stop, and only in first gear. Almost like the tires are getting intermittent it's not "hooking up", if that makes sense. Doesn't seem to occur when I accelerate hard though. Transmission seems to work fine otherwise. Has anyone else experienced this? What could the problem be?

Might just be wheelhop.

Definitely not accelerating hard enough for wheel hop. And with 18,000 miles on the car, I hope the struts aren't bad.

Have you checked the trany fluid level ? You may have a small seal or tranny pan gasket leak .
