I would suggest getting a shift kit from intense. I high performance one is about $125 I belive. Has everything you need, seals, filter, springs, everything but a gasket and fluid. Takes about 1 or 2 hours to install the kit, and is real easy. Only tools you really need is a inch pund tourque wrench. Instructions are easy to follow. If it'* your seals the problem will be fixed for a fraction of the price.

I don't see it as a problem but rather a condition...so it takes 15 seconds sometimes for the tranny fluid to come up to pressure. So what? I'm going to spend $2,000 to have the transmission rebuilt? I think not. My car has not changed in 6 months of driving at this point I have my money out of the car and can throw it away.

Wait till that very trans does leave you stranded... And your issue indicates an internal problem... And I'll be happy to see you throw it away...


Good day to you


Also for the sake of this thread.... I had no idea he was low on fluid at the time.... Makes a huge difference
