I have a '97 Tiburon fx with the auto trans, My problem is that when I get on it...especially when its cold, it slips between 2nd and 3rd. I want to autocross it again this year but want to fix the problem first. I bought the car used and they (dealer) had just finished putting in a new trans. that one lasted a week and was trashed so they replaced it again and its been ok, but the dang thing seems to slip when I get on it. I would love a 5 spd but cant afford a new car at the moment so Im stuck with the auto, anyone with a solution? I read somewhere that this is a common problem and that the motor was too fast for the trans. and that the trans didnt shift fast enough to keep up. any help would be awesome

thanks

yes, take it to the dealer. My tranny also had the same problem, except between 3rd and 4th. It turned out to be a stuck valve in the tranny, cause the computer to **** up.

Just so you know, all the trannies use a form of fuzzy logic. Alls that means is that the tranny computer learns and adjust to your driving style!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Based on the fact that you autox and your having tranny problems it is advisable to get at transmission cooler. Check out Brendan's web-site for more info. I don't hav the link but I you can contact him TeamSR.org.
The transmission cooler for automatics is only about a 30 buck install. You can get them at most auto parts stores. I got mine at Pep Boys. Extra insurance against a transmission that is known to fail.

Some shops offer a 100% change of the transmission fluid. They hook into the cooling lines, pump the new stuff in, old stuff is pumped out. This procedure is performed while the car is running and takes about 10-15 minutes. It will probably run you about 100 bucks.

Please note that if the transmission still has these problems after the change-out, there is probably something wrong with the transmission. Being hopelessly redundant, I am going to recommend using synthetic ATF. It will maintain its viscosity over a wider temperature range.
