I have an 04 SS Supercharged. Initially, the transmission slipped a little when you had a lead foot. I had a transmission flush, new fluid, new screen etc; but that actually made it worse. I put in that tranny fix stuff from Walmart to see what would happen, and it fixed that problem short term. Eventually the slipping came back. Finally after a few more months, now my transmission won't go in any forward gear or in reverse.
1) Is it time for a new transmission, or is this a torque converter problem?
2) If it is transmission time, should I just get that transmission rebuilt? Or is there a performance transmission to be had for under $2K?

shouldnt of got the trans flushed.... its a big no no in these trans..
once you notice a problem its usually too late, i say its time for a rebuild, or a "new" junk yard trans.
my car is on its 3rd trans, my advice is find a junkyard trans with a warranty, put a "trans go" shift kit it, put a 2nd magnet in the trans pan (under thie filter) and use dex 6 fluid and change it every year or every 2 years. NEVER FLUSH.

Depending on where you are. It may be that you might want to have a shop Rebuild yours. With the SS it is the HD Trans and as cheap as you may be able to get the normal Transmission for, I am not sure I would want to try the standard if it was me... Sadly there are couple SS 04 or 05 in 500 miles of my area. By the time you get there they are Picked clean of Motor and Trans. It is almost like people just chill out side looking for them to show up lol... I went in 2 days after this last one came in. Thinking I could get the tail lights from it. It was clean. Nothing worth left. Maybe put a Parts request out there if you are in an area where they have Part Pullers. I have them listed on an AP on my phone and still miss parts I want lol...
