How's the trans fluid level? Anything leaking underneath? Your symptoms aren't good, but it might be something as simple as low fluid level.

Smell anything burning? Slipping creates a lot of heat, so you should smell it if that's really the problem. Remove the dipstick and inspect the fluid. Is it burnt?

Aaron i didnt smell anything burning when it was slipping. I just went out and checked the level and it was at the low hatch marks. I put the fluid on my fingers and it had a little black to it. it didnt smell burnt like others that i smelled. fluid was still red on the dipstick but when i rubbed my fingers through it thats when i noticed the black residue. Bad bands im guessing. After the car sat for about two hours it moved pretty good back and forth, i diddnt take it out on the road or anything but it moved with no slipping.

PostSubject: what tranny will fit   Transmission Trouble, Slipping?? (Series I SC) - Page 6 EmptyTue May 17, 2011 5:07 pm

Hi guys well my transmission finally gave out and having trouble finding a used one. So my question is will the n/a tranny work with the s/c motor? i can find a used n/a transmission. I thought the 95's shared the same transmission with the n/a and the s/c. I know there both 4T60E, but are the insides the same? I thought i heard that the s/c tranny is build heavier than the n/a, but it might of been for the 4T65E HD model for 97-99. need a little help please. dunno

You either need the heavier transmission or to have the lighter transmission rebuilt into being the heavier one (yes this can be done with transgo and sonnax parts). Notably among other things you need the output shaft with the blued (hardened) splines. Someone who actually tears down and rebuilds these things will know *exactly* what this means. If you ahve a clean workbench and can pull the transmission you can do it yourself, the HD bands, fibers and steels are all available.

Well to give everyone an update, I finally got the riv back with a used transmission. runs great. After driving with a good transmission i now know how bad the old one was.
For all you 95sc guys, it would 'nt be a bad idea if you find a used transmission get it to have on hand. I called about 10 junkyards and know one had any. All good now, thinking ill change out the fluid again in a couple of weeks. Anything else i should to this as far as PM?
