And I did not eat some funny food....

The damn thing is slipping in and at randomly, mostly at lower speeds.
I need some ideas where to take it, since aamco's last rebuild only lasted 18 months -total 2,000.00 waste! :(

So here is the deal:
Post me some names & places that you have dealt with that can fix it right.
I want a place that gives better than a 12k - 12 month warranty. :eek:

Someplace that believes in bringing a cannon to a gunfight not some :gapteeth: or a ghetto:fro:fabulous company.

just go down to j-yard and get a used tranny, way cheaper than any of those options. DBXJ will do it for you for a good price, we did mine and I haven't had any problems. Total cost for a used tranny and t-case, $200...

first flush the tranny and check for any metal in there if there isnt probly just a loose band i'd take it to A-1 they'll tighten them for around 100$

I dunno but it seems to me that he would not be the type of guy who would actually flush the tranny, I think he'd rather pay someone to check it all out :)

The last time I flushed a tranny was on my Mazda....Oh what fun THAT was!
Took all the bolts off the pan after I thought everything was drained. Fought with the pan for five minutes and BINGO :eek: The pan came off and about two quarts of Extremely warm transmission fluid ALL over my chest :eek: :eek: :eek: !!!!!

Would it be out of the question to find a "newer" junkyard tranny and swap it in?

I put a bottle of Lucas transmission fix in it yesterday, and it helped alot -immediately. The bastard was slipping big time on the way to the auto parts store. After that was very smooth and just about normal.

Before I put it in the filler tube I noticed smoke/steam coming out of the filler hole with the dipstick out!!!!!! :eek:
Taking it today to get a flush, then will take it to a shop from there. Wondering of there is a pump and it is not circulating, thus just cooking it.

Went to Jiffy Lube and had the Trans flushed, they found the connection @ the radiator loose. Much better but still slips from time to time. Will take it into one of those shops you referred... Thanks
