Seems my tranny going out soon...

4X3S tranny on a vulcan 00 SE with 108k on it

Last week after about 200 miles driving, it stopped on redlight. I put it on D but it behave like on N, with over 3000 rpm but the speedo remains at zero and all of a suddent, it came back to life.. I also start to have problems on highways too, it seems it slipps on o/d around 70 miles, rpm contantly changes in small range(even in cruise contol)

I had the tramission fluid and filter changed and it seems it improves a little bit but not sure how long it will last... the guy told me that the gasket is clean so he don't know what's wrong with it

So anyone can give me some suggestions as how to prolong the tranny's lifespan? I heard some discussions on tranny cooler, what exactly is that stuff and where can i have it installed? will it really help?

Many thanks for your suggestions!

I had some of you symptoms a while back and it turned out my neutral postiion switch/sensor was bad. it did show up as a code in stored memory but did not trip the C/E light.

try pulling codes and see what comes up.
