Answers :

Could it be possible the coolant lines are reversed not allowing the trans fluid to reach the cooler? The pressure line from the trans pump can easily be identified by taking it loose and directing the fluid into a container.
Check transmission cooler lines for restriction also check transmission cooler also it could be plugged. if all is good.transmission could be overheating because engine overheating or if you towing pulling boat or camper transmission will overheat.

I have a 1995 nissan sentra 1.6. When in 5th gear it does not stay in 5th gear it slips out. When i keep it in by hand it drives fine.

I have to rev the engine up more than usual to get the car to move in drive or reverse. Once I'm moving the car shifts out through all the gears fine. As I'm slowing down to a stop, and can feel the car shift out of first gear into a neutral mode. I've changed out the filter, and added new fluid with 24 ounces of Transfix by Lucas.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 3500 4x4 diesel with an automatic. When starting out in first gear it revs to 2100rpm before shifting into second and when it shifts it seems to bee slipping or free wheeling until the accelerator is let off. Then it shifts and no problem with slipping. We changed the transmission fluid, filter and added friction modifer. There was no burnt smell or color in the old fluid, but this did not help.
