You said the pan was pretty clean when you serviced it and did the shift kit. Kind of a head scratcher??? The only thing I would suggest short of pulling the trans is trying a bunch of sea foam and a good flushing using Dextron VI other than that sounds like it'* time to disassemble this thing and have a good look.
Thanks for your response. Not what I was wanting to hear, but kind of what I was suspecting. While I am comfortable doing jobs like the solenoids, I don't have the tools nor the experience to tackle pulling the trans apart.
This car is used by my daughter while in college and she only has 1.5 years left and maybe 15K miles. That'* all this car needs to last.
How much sea foam would you suggest i run through it. Put it in and drive the car for a bit or just leave the car on the rack while running it for circulation and then do the flushing?
