Tranny slips

1995 Grand Prix. I replaced a CV axle that was noticbly ground smooth on the tire side and noticed a hairline crack around the entire housing where the CV axel went into the tranny. The small housing had four bolts and looked like it was removable. Tranny fluid leaks from here, at most a quart down. Then the tranny slips badly. Would one quart cause such bad slipping or is there most likely, other serios problems int he tranny causing this? It doesn't slip when I top off the tranny fluid.

Thanks in advance,

Lance

Low tranny fluid is bad, very bad for the tranny. Eventually, the tranny will fail if you don't get it fixed. Being low on fluid makes the tranny very hot.

I am looking to ascertain whether or not the small housing where the cv axle slides into, the tranny, is replaceable. This small housing has four bolts so, I presume it is. But, it does not seem to be readily available at a parts store.

Thanks in advance,

Lance
