transmission problems

Asked by Apr 01, 2008 at 01:24 PM about the 1998 GMC Safari

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

are there many complaints of slipping trany's while under load?

2 Answers


only when they get a lot of mileage or heavy loads or if they are driven "hard". my 97 had 337kms on it when I traded it, original tranny/engine


im not complaining , my safari is rounding about 430,000 miles and has a slight slip, but i just throw some Lucas transmission fliud in it and it's fine. it's a thick blend but works amazing, just don't overfill.
