In the last week I have notice that my Tranmission slip sometime 99% of the time on 2001 Ford Focus

Is the tranmission going bad or should just change the fluid and filter

Odds are that it is going bad.Something is worn,hardened,or damaged if you have that symptom.Not unexpected on a car of that vintage,especially if it didn't see much transmission service in it's life. Front wheel drive transmissions are expensive to deal with,probably not economic. I recently replaced the transmission(the best way,with a dealer installed reman unit) in my 2002 Taurus wagon-the cost was more than 3k,but the rest of the car was in pretty good shape,and the car suits my purpose ideally.Time will tell if it was a worthwhile investment.
