Has this happened to anyone.
Sunday and Monday I made a road trip to ATL to pick up my tranny with the Bonneville. It ran like a top the whole way there, and while I was there. On the way back, I lost all power to the car for two or three seconds, but the engine never went out, so I drove cautiously to the next exit 1.5 miles away, and it did it once more on the off ramp, so I didn't even wait to get to a gas station. I pulled on the shoulder and started troubleshooting. The first thing I looked at was the alternator, had good connections. Next the battery, the positive terminal had melted, and one of the wires was just laying on the terminal. Below the battery it looked like a pile of melted and dried again solder. Is there a cause for this that I should worry about, I replaced the terminal at a nearby auto parts store. I am glad I carrried tools, because I almost didn't put them in the trunk.
BTW: The dumbass I bought the tranny from didn't bother to drain it, so now I have a spare tire well full of fluid, good thing I entirely stripped the trunk.
