exhaust....but I wanna fix THIS problem before possibly wasting any more

the rpm don't go up while in gear without the wheels turning faster unless the trans is slipping


Mee not understanding question!


What jimmy is saying is that the trans could be slipping. Since you already replaced the trans gasket and filter, how is the fluid, is it full? You might have more going on, like a faulty torque convertor or burned bands. Not sure what else you have going on under the hood as you say you also have an exhaust leak, so what else could be wrong? We don't know. So you looking at maybe replacing or rebuilding the trans. BTW: If I can't figure out a problem, I like to get a second set of eyes on it, like my local mechanic who can diagnose exactly my issue. Sometimes it pays in money and time.
