1996 Chrysler Town & Country Question: transmission slipping

a few days ago my transmission appeared to give out when trying to accelerate from a stop at a red light, i had it towed home and the next day it appeared to run. today i took it to get the transmission flushed and on the four mile trip the transmission slipped a few times but i made it to the service center. during the flush the fluid coming out had a lot of bubbles in it, clean fluid was put in in and on the way home it started slipping a lot more, going up and down hills, and now i am hearing a whining sound when i accelerate, any ideas for a simple fix? Thanks, nate

    Doesn't sound like you'll be lucky enough to get a "simple" fix for this. Once the transmission starts to go, they generally need rebuilding or replacement. Did you have the shop perform any diagnosis for the slipping? Did they check for any fault codes stored in the transmission module?
