First, make sure the fluid is up, but you probably did that already. Second, check to see if the fluid smells burnt. If it does you've been having clutch slipping problems and it's probably near gone anyway. If you're trying to squeeze a little more life out of an older vehicle there are a few things you can do. What you're describing seems like a "valve body" issue, where seals are possibly leaking pressure and valves are not moving properly. When they warm up they might work better... sometimes... if the stars are aligned and you hold your breath. First, let it warm up before putting it in gear. That might help prevent transmission slipping but maybe not. Second, there are some transmission seal additives that can soften the seals of a transmission valve body and help it last a little longer. Sometimes using these products make the seals SO soft that they give out, but it's all a gamble anyway so if the transmission is getting to be marginal, go for it. One brand is called "Trans-X" and it seems to be a little better than some of the others, at least by my experience. Obviously a transmission rebuild would be better but in the real world some of us can't afford that and we need out vehicles to keep running.
Belt slippage usually results in a squeeling noise and the belt will eventually heat up and self-destruct. You may have a clutch problem if the power is not getting from the engine to the tranny. Or it can be a trans problem is something inside is worn and slipping. Check the transmission fluid if it is an automatic. If the transmission fluid is good and it is an automatic, you will probebly have to take it to a transmission shop. Very little can be done to repair an automatic without removing it from the vehicle. If it is a manual, have a qualified mechanic check the clutch. I've had the same problem,it turned out to be transmission problem. I had to pay $1400 to rebuild my transmission. The longer you drive with a bad transmission,the more damage is being done to it.
Automatic transmission shifts can be related to fluid temperature and some vehicles also have sport style settings that can change shift quality. If the shifting is irregular and causing unusually high engine speeds this could be a symptom of transmission gear slippage. Gear slippage can result in transmission damage, and should be checked as soon as possible. Automatic transmissions are complex systems, and their overhaul/replacement can be very expensive repairs.
4 speed. There are three speeds in which the transmission permits more slippage between the engine flywheel and the torque converter. The OD, or "overdrive" gear is a fourth gear that creates a direct mechanical connection between the transmission and engine. This creates a higher gear ratio that improves gas mileage.
I have the same problem the code means Transmission Slippage dectated. ECM has dected an excessive amount of slippage during normal drving conditions. Problem Casue Low Fluid Level Failed Transmission yep i feel your pain join the money pit... Matt I have the same problem the code means Transmission Slippage dectated.

no If not, then what might cause a 1996 Volkswagen Golf to shift from 2 to 3 at 40km/h and then 3 to 4 (Overdrive) at 50km/hr? Pls note, aside from this, the car works fine, its even hard to notice when the car switches from gear 1 to 2. Am asking cos i just got it and am not sure if this is how they all are, or if its a sign of impending trouble.
You don't repair transmission slippage. Transmission slippage is usually caused to damage with the transmission, usually with wear and tear of continual automatic changing in the gears. Transmission repair is not typical so transmission replacment it the alternative means. And it is said to be costly. Be prepaired for that. You can try to use alternative means to stabalize and reduce the transmission slipping, but that would be temporary. There are synthetic fluids to place in the transmission which does one of two things; 1. Breaks down the transmission fluid to remove build up and grit which might have built up and congested the transmission gears needed to shift or 2. create traction by coagulating the transmission fluid in order to help re-enfforce more traction with gear shifting. Recommendations: Do not change transmission fluid and transmission filter, for the fluid in the transmission should be thick and gritty, at this point, and should be more than enough to create traction with helping the shift changes in your car. Change your gears to drive on "1" or "2", instead of regular "D." In doing so, your transmission will shift at different intervals, letting you drive better with less slippage. But remember, in driving on "1" or "2", you will waste more gas and your regular automatic shifts when in "D" will alter shifting later than usual, which will also cause a slower take off and a more sudden stop.
Drive 1 locks the automatic transmission into first gear (preventing an upshift). Very good to use when parked or stopped on a very steep slope and you need to move forward and do not want the transmission to shift. Drive 2 locks the automatic transmission into second gear. This is sometimes referred to as a "snow" drive position, as it causes the engine power to be applied to the wheels much more slowly (via converter slippage within the transmission) minimizing actual wheel-spin when accelerating from a stopped position.
