1994 Laredo Transmisson Problems
Ok so, from doing some research, I think I have the AT-A518 transmission. I came to that conclusion because of the year and that I have the 5.2l V8.
The problem is, it won't actually shift out of first as a rule. If it does make it to second by some divine miracle, that's as far as it goes. So I'm going down the road doing 30.....at 3000rpm. Not good.
What i have done so far: ok so i just bought this vehicle, and i have only had it a couple days. I added some Seafoam TransTune and a quart of transmission fluid. So far, no difference.
My question to you fine folks: What should i try in order of escalation? If all else fails will rebuilding the transmission suffice? Or should I be looking at a new transmission? My family has some skilled mechanics who could rebuild a trans pretty easily, but I would like some outside opinions.
