    Transmission slipping ?????

    I obviously don't know much about cars, this being not only my very first car (04' WRX) but a very good first car. But, about two months ago when shifting I noticed the RPMs over revving -- This happens 4 out of 10 times. Basically I would like to know if the tranny is slipping and if so how to fix it. Later today I'll post a video of my car, so for now here is the closest video I've found.

    If it helps, Having little to no knowledge on cars, I did not know I have to change the transmission fluid. I just thought if I change the oil it does it for the tranny as well (I've had the car since september).



    Even with my lack of information I know this can't be good.

    Sorry for taking up your time guys and I can donate something I will, thanks in advance.

    I'm confused. You're talking about your 04 WRX and you show a video of a Legacy GT with an automatic?

    Is your car a 4EAT or 5MT?

    That is called a "hybrid." They're all the rage today.

    Manual transmission + symptom = Slipping clutch = install new clutch.
    Automatic transmission + symptom = slipping clutch or clutch packs = rebuilt transmission.

    My car is 5MT and it has 146k miles, the reason for the video is to show what it somewhat looks in my car. Even if it is not the same car or transmission, My tachometer is behaving the same way -- @ high RPMs it sometimes over revs like the video, but more noticeable.

    Thanks everyone again.

    If that's what's happening with your car and the clutch is fully engaged (foot is off the pedal) you have a slipping clutch. A new one is in order.

    Not necessarily, burnt or old fluid can cause some ammount of slip with the torque converter. Could be a simple case of needing a fluid flush.
