    when was the last time it was serviced?? sounds like a seal issue but could be a partially clogged filter. if you have been driving for a while like this, damage may have been done internally.

    A code P1870 usually indicates torque converter slippage. If you bring your car over to Mr. Transmission on I-10 East (713-455-1780)or on Antoine (713-683-0700), we will check it out for free and tell you what needs to be done.
