Well, I was leaving my school last night, and while turning onto the main road at the light I gave it gas like I always to to get ahead of traffic. I'm usually in third gear when I make the turn and give it just enough gas to get into second gear, so I can pass all the slow Honda's and crap in front of me. Well last night, after I hit the gas, it downshifted in to second gear, but then slipped into first. When it did this, the car let out a loud screach from underneath up in the front. It's the first time it's ever dropped a gear and allowed the clutches to slip like that. It shifter from first, to back into second, then third and fourth just liek normal after that though, and was perfectly fine the rest of the night though all the way back to my apartment. My shift solenoids have been clicking loudly for the past couple of months everytime they engage a different gear, and they have kind of gotten a little slow sometimes, as far as the time it takes the car to downshift and upshift. I'm definitely going to change out the shift solenoids and replace the tranny fluid and what not in two weeks if I have the time. I was really just curious to knwo whether or not any one else has every had there car drop a gear on them, while slipping into the lower gear and then not had a single problem afterwards? It's almost liek it was trying to fight the downshift when it happened, which my be why the shift was so dawn out, causing the clutches to slip. I'm going to check the trans fluid tomorrow, and make sure there's no hint of burnt clutches. Anyway, if anyone has any thought on this, please feel free to chime in. Thanks.
