Crazy artistic bug lover
So I have had my SweetPea for six months. Her previous owner took very good care of her and we have all the records. I just have a few questions about her transmission. She is an automatic and I think 2.0 engine. She isn't a turbo. About a month or two ago her transmission slipped when shifting into 3rd(?) gear. It has only happened once. And sometimes she shifts a little hard. It also can take a little bit for her to shift and her RPM's go up. But I haven't seen it go up past 4. So is this normal for a 2000 automatic transmission? How could I tell if she would need a new transmission or anything else? Do bugs of this year have transmission problems? I'm probably worried over nothing, I come from a long line of worry warts. I just want my baby to be okay. I'm also probably freaked because I dented my skid plate a tiny bit today. I pulled to close to the curb while trying to straighten myself out. I failed. But she is okay, just a tiny dent and some scratched paint.
