New guy here, think I blew the trans in my delta 88 today
Hey guys I'm new here, from Northern IL.
My car is a 1978 Delta 88 Royale with a 5.7 and a TH350.
On to my problem.
I started my car this morning and after I pulled out of the driveway, I stupidly put my foot to the floor on a cold engine. After about 5 seconds of acceleration I lost all forward gears. D,*, and L now act as neutral. Reverse works, and luckily I was able to put it back in the garage.
After I lost the forward gears I pulled over and took out the trans fluid dipstick, smoke came out and there was not much fluid in there, it covered about 1/3 of the cross-hatch area.
So is it time for a rebuild? I bought the car in October and have no idea the last time the transmission was serviced, the car has 165k miles.
