Posted via FF Mobile The atx in these cars do go out time to time. How many miles are on yours, has it ever been serviced and has the fluid ever been changed? Have you checked the fluid to see if its brown, or red, red being normal?

This belongs in technical chat also, we got a big forum here, check out the rest of it

i have found that Lucas trans fix, will loosen up sticking valves, and stop slipping, the noises you are saying might be broken, instead of sticking; but for, 8 bucks it might be worth a try, good luck
