roll Help out a girl with her truck

I have a 1999 ranger xlt, it is an auto? I'm 99% sure my tranny is going, slipping pretty bad? My over drive seems to be the worst, would i loose over drive before any other gear, kind like in a manual, or will i just loose them all at once? What is the best way to go when it does go? All help is appriciated

I dont no if thats a smart comment or what but i dont think if the oil would cause the trans to slip. But if your talking about the trans fluid I think youd have trouble getting into gear. Someone else may come and slap me here.
Do automatics slip? Do they have clutches ive just got a mental blank

Re: Help out a girl with her truck

well id rather not get into that !
but yes an auto trans runs off of fluid and clutches the actual operation is very difficult to explain to someone.
but the fluid is under alot of pressure and applies pressure to different valves to accuire the different gears.
usually the first thing that happens as fluid gets low is the lose of reverse gear or another gear depending on the make of the trans.
so his question is presented rightfully so.

Shes talking about slipping. Slipping isnt caused by low fluid. Loss of gear is caused by low fluid. Arnt they totally different things.
yes actually they are.
it is rare that a low fluid condition would be causing a slipping feeling.
it is more than likely the the slipping problem is something inside the trans but we would need to know more detail about when and how it slips to narrow it down a bit.
