Ive been changing trans fluid and filter every 6 months since I brought her home, even when trans fluid looked new i still changed her.I recently noticed some shudder and poppin and locking and what not.I noticed more so when she shifted from first to second gear.So I decided to head home and pull the pan . When I pulled the trans pan and found how many little chunk'* where in the pan,I chunked in the pan
. I removed chunk and put the pan back on,supprisingly she'* still very much drivable
. So now im looking for info On the 4T65E years and vehicle compatibility for a donor tranny that will have the same gearing and swap in trouble free. Thanks Pauly.
