Might time for a rebuilt or used transmission. Have a reputable trans mechanic diagnose your issue. You then have to determine if it is worth dumping a few thousand $$$$ into a 17 year old car.

If not needed i'm interested in buying of it. Mail me if you are interested in selling it obiajunwajustine@yahoo.com Skype name Obiajunwa justine

Before spending money please do this... 1) open your hood and locate the TRANSMISSION dipstick. Look in your owner's manual if you need to find it. 2) Transmission levels must be measured with engine hot, so start up the car let it run for about 6 to 8 minutes. 3) never measure holding the stick up, always facing down. check the levels. 4) if low then add a little of Lucas Transfix. I had a vehicle that locked up and ran crappy for 2 years, this corrected the problem and I put another 180,000 more miles on it after that! 5) if the levels are good then you cannot overfill it. IF it has a drain plug (not all do) then drain some when the vehicle is cool and THEN add the Lucas Transfix. And that could save you $$$$ easily!! Just a suggestion. BTW if your trans fluid is low then check for spotting on the ground under your vehicle, you might have a leaky gasket.

What do low Trac mean?

325

Low Trac means "Low Traction". It is nothing to worry about. It just means that your tires slipped and two or more of them were monitored at traveling at different speeds. That happens anytime you take off fast or are on a slippery surface such as mud or ice. It doesn't mean anything is wrong with any tires or drive train. It is just the vehicle's observation.
