First transmission slip - Chevy Corsica, 151,000 miles?
1996 Chevrolet Corsica, Automatic V6 3.1L. This is my first car, I've owned it for a few months now (had 147,225 miles at the time). It runs great for having so many miles on it. Soon after I got the car, I gave it a pretty basic tune-up (plugs, wires, air filter, bled the brakes, changed oil & filter). Soon later, about a month and a half ago, I changed the transmission fluid and filter too. The transmission slipped today for the first time since I've had it. I was turning right in rainy weather and attempted to quickly accelerate when it slipped. It was NOT a hard shift, there was no power going to wheels during the slip. It went back into gear almost right after I let off the gas. I checked the transmission fluid again and its still in great shape - reddish pink, no burnt odor, at the perfect level on the dipstick. When I changed the fluid and filter, there were no metal shavings at all. There was a little bit of a grayish sludge, no chunks. The only other symptom is sometimes it hesitates for maybe 0.5 - 1 second when I press on the gas, and will lunge forward a little bit if I press further on the accelerator. When shifting into drive it takes around .5-.75 seconds, I don't think it's ever taken a full second. Not sure if this is long or not, but I don't really have a point of reference since this is my first car. Shifting to reverse is almost instant, and putting it park to park seems to have the longest delay, about a second at times. There is no hesitation throughout other gears while in drive. Hope I was thorough enough, I'd love some feedback from you guys.
