I thank my stars I have him on my cell!!

How much power are you making?

at least you weren't surprised.

Junior, your sig pic just isn't big enough. Ask the mods if you can make it bigger.

Do you have a stock valve body?

Re: Differences between built trannys

I'm screwed. Tonight went out to the store. Something didn't feel right. There was a vibration coming from the drivetrain. Figured the motor was misfiring, that maybe I hit something while reinstalling the engine covers. Hooked up the scanner, nothing. Went to the store. ON the highway, hit the gas to try to accelerate lightly, just a heavy vibration. Hit the gas a little harder, got some acceleration, but alot of noise.

Got off the highway, stopped at a light. Light changed, gave her a little gas, got the vibration again, very little acceleration. Got there, picked up some crap, went home. Trying to get on the highway, same thing again. Lots of vibration and noise, not much acceleration. I did get home, after several episodes.

I'm thinking best case scenario is that the converter is shot. Worst case, tranny has internal damage. This sucks.

Re: Differences between built trannys

Mike you've been at this long enough to know that after the last symptoms you described, they were not going to get any better and that driving in that condition is only going to worsen your situation. Get her upon jacks/lift and get your driveline attended to.

Re: Differences between built trannys

I have an appointment with AJ on Monday. Was supposed to be just for a weatherstrip change, but I guess now it will be more. I'll call him in the morning and let him know.

$240 down the toilet for the flush.
