Hi guys I have a problem with my 1995 that seems to be just the reverse of that you are having
366k on it never touched as far as I know.100K of my own on it..
once warm when you come to a stop while it'* shifting from 2nd to 1st it wants to like thump,, and in turn at times it wants to jump out of engaugement shifting up from 1st or 2nd (it'* hard to tell which)
it may disengage while excelerating and then jump right back in with a bang..
on the road it runs like a charm once out of 2nd gear I'd say, reverse is OK..
all this while I have my trany out of my 1999 with 145K on it..
this one is a different story,, the drive hub went bad, no drive but all else was great, just no drive even the lock up worked great.. bad mileage..
I have a friend that has worked on trans for 19 years,, I took the trany out and took it to him, and verified it was the Hub once a part, he did test the pressures first while i the car and all was OK,, now the problem
everything looked like new in side but the Drive hub so that got replaced along with the sun gear..
he helped put it back in,,, once in we put some fluid back in 4 qts at first started just to pump it up he put it in reverse for just a sect and it started smoking out the dip tube..
we shut it down and put more fluid in another 4 qts the same thing shut it off instantly
we had 11 qt'* in it and then restarted it,, 1 2 3 ok drive 4th, now kicks in and out
reverse acts like the brakes are on hard and more smoke coming from the tub..
I don't get into many trans but I have change my share in the last 30 years but this is the first time one smoked like this,, there is no doubt that he did something wrong in side,, I'm just glad he was there to see it
we took it back out and he took it apart again now the drive clutches were burnt to a crisp.. he replaced them and re checked everything,, we put it back in and the same thing happened again, the problem is he doesn't know what he did for this to have happened.. any ideas other than firing his butt and get a used trany??
if you guy want to know where a few bolts are that you can't see that need to come out droping these you'll need to know about them,, it'* taking me alone about 4 hours to drop one.. at 52 the damn things are gets heaver all the time..
