Transmission slips often in the morning when it’s cool out when I pull out of my driveway about 50-100 yards away from my driveway it slips once
Tranny fluid is full (but not overfilled)
(I often pull a 4x8 utility trailer every couple weeks ,I never overload it, lite loads only)
Should I be concerned about the tranny slip?

Micheal-Hanna, Scotty would say to try changing the transmission fluid and PRAY it’s just that. If not, you will either need to hire a professional mechanic for 1,000s of dollars or you might have to get another car.

Hello scotty i have code p 1870 on my 2000 chevy camaro and the mechanic suggested to rebuild the transmission without even checking the car, it doesn’t really slip or maybe it does but not that i can feel it since it accelerates so fast but it start jerking after driving for about 80 miles
Is there any cheaper solution
