• Well you said drive, so it must be an automatic, so I would have to argue and say that it is the trans. So I would suggest you take it to someone other then who said it wasn't the trans. When it an automatic slips it usually is one of two things, standard wear of belts and clutch sets, or fluid pressure, either by it being low on fluid or by a clogged filter, bad pump and sometimes a bad torque convert. But that is all a problems with the transmission.

  • Torque Converter. The Torque converter is an oil filled torus that connects the engine to the transmission.

  • The car is 36 years old can it pass a critical safety inspection before you spend any money on it? Do you really want to drive a 36 year old car? The problem is somewhere between the engine and transmission an auto place should be able to fix it, if it requires a rebuild there will be more parts it should have to keep it on the road reliably.
