Holy COW! It'* getting better each time I drive it.
I drove 15 miles to Albany to pick up my busted trans parts, and went over to the parts store for my Mobil1 and K&N filter, then off to have it changed. The Manager of the lube place I go to is Ladd, owner of a 97 SSEi. He takes good care of my cars.
Surfs here occasionally unregistered.
Anyway, had the lube/oil/filter/fuel filter/coolant flush done to finish off my top end work. On the way BACK, I accellerated from a 35 to 55 zone in 2nd with a nice gentle throttle up, then backed out of the throttle at 60.......Bump.....Bump.
Bump #1: 3rd gear.
Bump #2: TCC lockup. Within a half second.
Passed a Mercury Sable wagon on Highway 20 on the way back, and had virtually NO stuttler/flutter from the TB porting! Almost there!
