I would not hurt to add the Seafoam after the change as well. I did, and change my fluid every 40k.
It would not hurt to have a look inside the accumulator bores while pan is off. Make sure all is well in there.
When U installed the TransGo shift kit did u scuff up the bores as well?
I used 1000 grit emery cloth wet with trans fluid in a circular motion inside the bores before installation.
Is that Sea Foam Trans Tune available at Autozone, Pep Boys, etc? I have a 04 LeSabre with 118k miles and I get the same thing once in a while. I need to check the trans fluid level - haven't done that in a long while.
2004 LeSabre Limited 3800
"Quick update" i think i have a problem & i belive the trans fluid is getting to hot & possibly boiling or close to it.
Reason being! "I drained some of the fluid before adding the "trans tune" just about half of a glass just so that i could get a good look at the fluid condition. Now i changed my tranny fluid not to long ago. And i believe it shouldnt be "dark" this soon.. This could be my problem in its self... Any input anyone?
How did u drain a half a glass out?
When u say dark are u talking more reddish or black looking? Did it smell burnt?
Keep in mind that when u drop the pan you are only removing half of the rebuild capacity of fluid. 6 quart pan drop to 13 rebuild, lots stays in converter etc.
So if it was a long time in initially and u changed it recently u still only have half new fluid.
Average running temp of trans-axle fluid is 180-200F
Normally if fluid is burnt it will have foul burnt smell to it.
This is my tranny fluid in a clear container, i took pics at different angles, and use a direct light from my high beams. Thats the only time u can actually really see the redness in it... Mind you it hasnt even really been a 2 months since i changed it. And also i dont drive much.
