If I were you, I would post an ad on this site stating what you want. There is always someone hitting a junkyard and most people don't mind helping a fellow out. You may be surprised at what is still available through the dealership or at the local parts store.

After having seen the inside of these transmissions and what the Trans oil pump looks like.... You do not want to drive with the Fluid foamy... You can scar and destroy the Pump due to lack of lubrication and you can also cook the clutches for the exact same reason..

He may be a good mechanic, but driving on a trans that has foamed the trans fluid is never a good thing..

If the foam is gone, I'm thinking I could prolly relax and watch it. If not, will a flush/fluid/filter change be enough of a fix, do you think?

Thanks

You don't even have to go through all of that... All you have to do is loose a little fluid.. If you want to have the tranny fluid and filter changed I would sure recommend that... But all you really need to do is get the Fluid to the right level
