Unhappy

Say it isn't so! The transmission was serviced - drained, new filter, refilled - not long before you bought the car, and that was the 2nd transmission...

Is it still drivable? Or a tow away?

Define "starting to go bad", as lots of issued get wrongly blamed on the transmissions on lots of cars.

Well there was an intermittent Torque converter (P0741) that started popping up going around sweeping turns. The it started do more and more, then it started slipping, driving home today from transmission shop it was really slipping and not up shifting, especially 2nd 3rd, it now started to do that in 4 of the gears

Transmission is slipping, not up shifting.at times, especially from 2nd to third, but now.3 to 4. And 4 to 5 slightly.

Sounds like it just needed a converter, but continuing to drive it may have ruined it altogether.

If I did not already have a pile of projects, LOL...

I guess it just couldn't handle the torque, it was fine up until last fall, then occasionally (going around sweeping turns, especially 895spur off of I-97 it started the torque converter issue. If I had a use for the car, I would see about getting conversion done myself, but my needs have changed so I really need a much newer vehicle. It still a nice solid car, drives nice, but the torque converter started malfunctioning daily, then last week or 2 trans slipped a little in 2-3 up shift. I towed it to Trans shop ( only because I didn't have a ride) and it slipped alot for him, when I picked it up, a couple not miles down the road, it started slipping more, I nursed it home, try to stay on i-97 to eat 50, bit hit traffic at 97-rt3 split and the halfway down 97, it wasn't wanting to up shift, I would pull over and the start over and would be able to get it to 5th.
This Fortunately, it served me well when I really needed it to, so that just life, hopefully I find a good home for it for some to convert to manual and get years of use from it

When the first transmission went out on it we needed both cars, and I couldn't wait for the manual conversion kit, so we had a VW reman unit installed. Otherwise, I might still have that wagon...

If I didn't need something newer, I would bget the conversion done. Actually still thinking about it.
