I got my car last Janruary in 2009. I replaced the serpintine belt, water pump, radiator, when i first got it. it drove ok, then i replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, and O2 sensor...after replacing these 3 things..i notcied that my check engine light would only come on if i was driving on the interstate. i let my mechanic know, he ran a diagnostic on it and said it was running rich..said it was not a bad thing, i am a girl so im not sure what rich means. he said it was no big deal and that was all what is wrong with my car. i replaced the EGR valve, and i got all new spark plugs and wires this year thinking maybe it would help..still not improvement.. is there anyone who is knowledgeable about 89 chevy caprices?

Last night transmission in my beloved '89 Caprice Wagon let go, it slips completely in all the forward gears. I was coming down a long hill using low gear for several minutes and when I put it back into OD at the bottom it seemed to skip a little but it was still making power well enough. I got off the freeway at my exit and stopped at a red light, when the light changed I was reving high but barely creeping through the intersection. I pulled over and this is what I figured out:
-All the forward gears make essentially no power any more.
-Reverse seems to work normally.
-The fluid is at a normal level and not discolored or burnt smelling.
