Update on Previous Transmission issues.
Well i'm back with details.
It was a band that initially broke. it caused problems with other things as he suspected. here is an inventory list of what was replaced.
Gasket seal kit...215.74
transmission oil (12) @6.00...72.00
GRAND TOTAL FOR ALL PARTS...806.62
he told me the band was replaced the first time around, but for some unknown reason, failed. by the end of the entire process i was irritated, and felt i paid a great deal over price. too late now, everything is said and done. I got my bonneville back, and she runs great. still a goofy wa wa wa wa noise when i start her up, but thats been there for as long as i'v had it. thank you for your imput on everything.
