    my 700r4 had the same problem in december, i would only be able to get it into 1st and reverse, once the RPM's started going up it would just start slipping, ended up being a clogged transmission filter. there was a pretty good amount of metal shavings in the fluid. after i replaced it, it shifted like butter. but, like mine, if it does come out like red metalic paint, your gonna have to change the filter again after a few hundred miles. good luck.

    Does it happen all the time? Or only until it warms up?

    ...then change the tranny not too far later.

    does it do it all the time or only when cold or warm?
