Angry Auto Tranny Problem

I Hope this is the Right place to Talk about this, Well anyways I Have an Auto Tranny and once I first drive it, is fine but like 30 mins into the driving It goes out of gear, firs it wont want to change to 2nd gear, then if I step on it the engine revs but the car goes no were and if I try to switch to 2nd 1st or even reverse it wont do anything, I have to shut of the car turn it on and it will drive for like 1 min anyone know what I can do?

Check the fluid level. Make note of what color the fluid is and the smell.

Burnt smell = need a rebuild
Dark red or any color but nice tropical fruit punch red = need a rebuild
Slipping, free reving, not going into gear, no forward movement = need a rebuild
Continuing to drive the car even once after the first time it happened = need a rebuild

The point is, check the fluid, add if necessary but be prepared to get a rebuild. Chances are slim that adding fluid at this point will buy anything but some time.

The joys of auto.

Man I thought if you chose the auto tranny option when you were first making an account that it didn't let you hit the button at the bottom of the screen to make the account. Brain, make it so.

Still gay, mainly because all it can do is go straight.

Well, even when the auto tranny is working as it should I would consider it a "problem". Unless you are a paraplegic or something, then I can't hate.
