I think I transmission cursed myself
Ok so a few weeks ago, I posted a "should i get my tranny flushed" question as a preventative maintenance question. Well a few days later I noticed a spot of red under the car. Hmmm i thought that sucks. About a week after that i was approaching a red light and was on the brakes a little as the light turned green. When the light turned green I let off the brakes and went to get on the gas and the engine raced for a second as the the tranny slipped. ah sh*t i am thinking. since then, with the exception of the drip, no acting up. Today, i went to pull a U-turn. had the steering all the way turned to lock/stop and was inching around the u-turn and the tranny slipped again.
I had the tranny rebuilt by my local AAMCO about 24 months ago and I was hoping for some more life than this. The only thing that I can think of are two things...
1) when aamco replaced the tranny, they told me the mounts were worn and that I should replace them. I told them dont because i was trying to save some money. Could worn mounts be causing this slip issue?
2) I got a new readiator and had to disconnect and reconnect the tran cooler lines to the side tank on the radiator. I dont see how that could be the problem and that is not where it is leaking from.
I continue to keep checking the color and level of the fluid and it is still full and still clear and red. I have not had a chance yet to get the car up on stands to find where it is leaking from, but i plan to try to take a look today.
I am very open to any suggestion to try to trouble shoot this. I dont want to wait until it costs me ANOTHER full rebuild.
