The car test drove wonderful. Made payment drove approximately one mile stopped,fueled up. Upon starting motor didn't want to keep running. I forced it fuel to make it run, at that moment it felt the trans was slipping around 2nd to third causing rpm to excelerate and loss of speed to vehicle. continues to repeat unless I manualy shift the motor my self. Once in fourth it runs out decent but had a humming or winding and seems to be holding back.
checked damper seems to be working
changed thermostat
blew out heater core with air
blows cool not hot
could not find plug anywhere under.

Its worst coming off a dead stop or on a straight way vs when I'm turning
