Re: Automatic probs!!

Could be anything at this point from a stuck solenoid to vacuum line to discs/bands that are fried to just about anything. BUT it is safe to say that you should not have driven it nor should you continue to until it is repaired. it could be something small, but if you are losing more and more it is safe to say that you probably are looking at a complete rebuild.

Re: Automatic probs!!

Most FWD trannys are pretty much the same in terms of removal. You'll have to remove the starter, subframe, torque converter nuts, any wiring on top of the tranny/sensors/tranny cooler lines/etc. Also you will have to pull the axles. First pull the dipstick and check the condition and level of the fluid. If it is low, top it off. If it's dark and smelled burned you may likely need a new tranny.

Re: Automatic probs!!

Not sure how it is on your Probe, but you may also need an engine brace to hold the motor in place when you pull the tranny. Not sure if yours can be pulled underneath or from above either. What kind of Probe do you own?

Re: Automatic probs!!

You could probably try changing the filter and the fluid and see if that makes a difference before you condemn it.

Re: Automatic probs!!

Sounds like it'd be idea to just buy a new tranny.
