Wow what a bummer yesterday. Yeah the tranny just 'went' away, no noise or shudder. Was doing about 65 when the tranny temp climbed from 155-160 to 180, so I pulled into a rest area to have a look, noticed right away the cooler was cold but the tranny was hot?
Made it back onto the freeway and then it slipped hard and soon not at all.
Was hoping a flush would help like 2 years ago but when the shop dropped the pan there was needle bearings and chunks of steel
Fluid was not perfect but not burnt either?
Big thanks to John and Cole for rescuing me and keeping me out of a hotel for a few days. Tranny guy is awesome in Arlington, he has my trust.
When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, but lately its been a bit biter.
Oh well car should be ready by Tuesday and in the mean time the meet continues with no Bonne'* in sight
