my transmission seems to be slipping once in a while, especially in 2nd gear. It is a automatic transmission. I want to know about how much it is going to cost me to get it fixed, and is it someting that I can do myself.

    If it is slipping, then most likely you will need a transmission repair which means removing the transmission and disassembling it. It may be better to buy a rebuilt unit and install it with a new or rebuilt Torque Converter. This is fairly advanced work and you need a lift and a transmission jack to do it safely.
