Transmission over heat light has come on twice

moves only for two to five seconds the nothing
rpms start to Rev same thing in reverse!  Never
gave any signs of problems before and no noises

1 Answer


Your fluid level can be fine, but the over heating situation indicates clutch plates slipping or tour torque converter fins have possibly collapsed. Either way you are looking at a transmission removal and teardown. My guess is it has very high mileage on the transmission. Your transmission fluid is probably burnt also. Sorry for the bad news.
