Slipping occurs when the transmission, either manual or automatic, attempts to change gears, but falls either into the gear that it was previously in or into neutral. This can be a dangerous problem when on the road. Some signs that your transmission is slipping are a Check Engine light, unusual smells or noises, difficult gear changes, or RPMs increase, but the vehicle doesn’t speed up. This issue can be caused by a number of things such as a transmission fluid that is low or burnt, worn out gears or bands, or clutch problems. If your vehicle is experiencing gear slipping, it isn’t a good idea to continue to drive it, as this can be unsafe and make the problem worse.
