2002 3800 LS

Recent work includes new hubs and new pass cv shaft. Fuilds are topped off and nothing smells burnt.

For a few weeks I have gotten a oddball slip when turning left and needing to accelerate decently. It seems like the car goes into neutral and free revs then as you straighten out it bangs in and sometimes will even spin a tire. If I baby it, it does not seem to happen, but things do kinda feel off with the drivetrain. I get an occasional light pulsing through the car when cruising at steady speed and the turns to the right will sometimes seems to have a shudder but not the neutral drop type scenario.

I tried researching and think it could be the pressure solenoid, but before tearing into dropping the trans to swap that I would like y'alls expert opinions. Or should I just drop the pan and change filter and add some trans-X or similar? Or do I baby it til it dies and swap an entire trans into it?

Is there anything else it could be?

I drive this car 135 miles a day of mostly interstate as a commuter and not much otherwise, but it is clean and comfy and runs well with good MPG so i would like to keep it dialed in.

All help is appreciated

You said the fluid levels are all fine, but when that happened to me with a Dodge I owned, the car was telling me the ATF level was low. Added a quart & the problem was gone until the next time, about a year. GARY

I can see that, but since the fluid level is not low and overfilling is not a good thing and can cause further issues, I will try to find another remedy.

By turning left in a hard turn, the fluid is being pulled away from the filter pick up due to G forces. What else could cause this? GARY

There is no speed involved. It is from a stop going to the far lane or a two lane road. Fluid should not have force to shift that far. It is a commuter not a race car and there no real g-forces in play.

Could be the Pressure Control Solenoid.

Could be the Trans mount.

Could be motor mounts.

However being that your issue was from low fluid and mine is full...why would you think more fluid would fix it?

Just saying what my problem was. My car would do this even while making a left turn at 10 mph coming home from work. If your fluid is full, then certainly don't overfill it. Good luck in solving this problem. GARY

Sorry for not updating my results.

I did not have any broken mounts, but something had to be worn because new dog bones, trans and motor mounts fixed it up.

Problem is now I need a new heater core and it has been parked for past 6 weeks til i get time to tear into it.
