Transmission

Asked by Dec 13, 2009 at 11:05 PM about the 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2 Dr GS Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys, i just bought a 99 spyder gs. The only problem is that the transmission slips before roughly shifting, especially from 1-2, and 2-3. I think this only happens when it's cold, but just in case should I take any precautions or just simply change the atf?

ask the previous owner if the car has a shift kit put in. that can do that to. ifnot, change the fliud.
