My transmission (automatic) started slipping in and out at about 35 mph. Once I hit about 45-50, it was fine. Had transmission rebuilt, and it kept doing the same after about two days. Replaced a barrel in transmission, after 24 hours, back to slipping. Completely replaced transmission with another rebuilt, drove about 360 miles (on a road trip... mostly interstate driving) and it started again. Not nearly as bad. Coming back home, in the middle of a nasty rainstorm that slowed interstate traffic to a crawl, it started slipping worse than ever. When the storm was over, and the truck seemed to dry out, it stopped for the most part. Back in town, it started slipping at around the same speeds (in and out). Now, when I come to a complete stop, it doesn't want to engage and I have to pull over and tap the gas until it engages and I can drive. Then it starts slipping in and out at the same speeds.
Seeing as how this is a completely different transmission, I feel that the issue isn't in the transmission itself, but something causing the transmission to start slipping gears. Also, It seems to be better when it is warm and dry. If it is moist outside, or cold, or hot, it starts slipping. Cooling temperatures, morning dew on the ground, and a couple of days of rain happened before it stopped engaging after a complete stop. This is why I believe that there is a moisture issue somewhere.
I really cannot afford a new transmission again, nor can I really afford to take it to a mechanic this time, so I'm hoping someone can give me some answers that won't be terribly expensive.

What seems to make the problem better or worse? Damp weather, cold, or hot (above 85)
How long have you had this problem? over a year
Please help me
Car sounds good runs good just want move even when you put it in drive
It started acting up all of a sudden. It has 205K miles on it. I changed the fuel pump 50K miles ago. was working fine then all of a sudden when I put the car in gear it just hesitated. I was able to drive it home but when I pushed the peddle to the floor it would stall. It hesitates to start but once it does it idles fine but when I press the peddle down it stalls and some times it sounds like its choking or back fires.
Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated
Randomly. But sometimes it dosemt
My Yukon's transmission goes into and shifts easy but when it gets warm after 1-2 miles seems to shift in to neutral. Turn it off and let it cool. I have gears again. Is it a some switch or the transmission?
water pump and serpentine belt replaced last week
brand new motor,transmission.idle doesnt even change when tryin to shift.
Purchased used about a month ago. Switch button shows 2WD and won't change. Forums suggest it may be one of several problems. How can I isolate which component is culprit? I do not have code reader or lift. Former owner says he had a problem getting out of 4WD. I've never gotten it into 4WD.
where is the heater control valve located
replaced MAF sensor,new fuel filter vehicle still hard to start plus runs ragged now diagnosed no codes
there is not a light on in the dash
i changed the therostat and checked the fluid levels
Just replaced the battery in a 2000 Yukon XL, now it stalls. Anything I can do, or does it need a certified mechanic?
