Transmission problem

I think you understand that transmission starts breaking, with this kind of mileage it's time.
Advice will be: either sell a car, start fixing transmission, which can be expensive or replace it, which can be eventually cheaper then to rebuild.

And the last idea, which works for me, check the oil level periodically, drive it carefully, do not force the transmission, feel the shifting and try to make smother shifting by releasing the gas before it shifts to next gear. When it shifts smoothly without hit it means you do it right. And who knows maybe it will run another 20K or more.
