Okay, found something that may be the TCC plug, 5 wires, one orange on the front of the tranny in easy view if you look under the hood, (2) no more smoke from under the hood, (3) found out 100 for shipping to a business, 249 tranny, it is a vin C only 60k miles on it (car now has nearly 174k miles on it i've only owned it for about a month and i've put 2000 miles on it) (4) i talked to one shop that will charge me 550 for labor each time they do this tranny swap (some guy got a tranny off of e-bay and the car wouldn't move with it in so it took multiple times) and i think a wheel bearing is going out in the right rear. I love the sound of my car when i rev it in Neutral it growls so mean-like!!! oh yeah and front pads starting to squeek, and heat still coming in the car, heat comes in consistent with speed your driving not revs.
I'm gettin a tranny James

bakcyard mechs i don't really trust, but the deal is they'll put new fluid filter and seals on with it, also would they have to take the whole engine out to make it easier or just do it while the engine is in the engine bay? just wondering cause then they'll have to check all the lines they are reconnecting, because while i was getting my oil changed, engine flushed cuz oil was burning (10w-30 for 4000 miles) and fuel injectors cleaned (total price: $125) they found a vaccuum line loose and reconnected it and they engine ran incredibly smooth. also, look for other posts for recent info.

you must really love your bonneville,i also get my filter and seals done so she dont leak and the tranny was changed in the bay,and i payed 200$+10 quarts of ATF

dont get my wrong,just if youre gonna pay 550$ for labor...it really better be worth it.i love my bonneville too,just 500+ is ruthless...

How difficult is it to actually replace a transmission in our cars? Is it as hellish as most fwds?

support the engine, pop the axles, disconnect all the connections to the trans... unbolt the trans and TC... and drop

personally I have more trouble getting the trans out from under the car and the new trans up and in position more then the wrench work involved in the swap (thats for both FWD and rwd)
