Hi, I'm new here and hope to get some advice on what the best course of action to take in regards to my 1991 eb fairment V8. Last night on my way home, my auto transmission start slipping, I would start of in first, then engine would rev load, the auto would barely shift into 2nd 3rd or 4th, I had noticed there was a whinning noise as well in 1st or 2nd gears, in reverse gear seems to be slipping as well, when the engine is cold and I shift through the gears ok very reponsive, but once warmed up the gears start slipping again, on my wat home today at the lights I started off in 1st then it went to change to 2nd, all I got was no power at the rear wheels, rolling down the road basically, just revving the almost foot to the floor.. If anyone could give me any ideas on how to fix this, would be great, cheers..

flush, new filter+pan gasket and if that isn't enough then fit a monster trans cooler to keep the temps down.
