Forget about working inside that trans. I did with my trans builder, and I STILL wouldn't on my own.

And I suggest not telling the trans shop that you can only do one-wheel burnouts.

There'* no other way to say this other then bluntly so here goes:

Guy, march yourself back to that Tranny mechanic and do what Bill told you to do Friday night. That transmission is FUBAR and you already paid for a rebuild. Tell him you want it done right this time.

There'* no other course of action here and you've been told the same thing by many different experienced Bonneville owners. We all want to see this turn out right for you, but if you truthfully paid for a transmission rebuild last month go get your money'* worth. If not, find out what the hell they DID do, and get an honest to god rebuild done.

I explained to him he fucked it up.... it never shifted perfectly and was obviously built wrong because it felt like a bad torque converter after about a few weeks i just never had the time and when i did they said it was the pcm....

Guy listen VERY Carefully:

Go to ANOTHER tranny mechanic. Ask him for a diagnosis in writing. Pay the $100 or so bucks its going to cost. TAKE THE DIAGNOSIS TO THE OTHER GUY and explain to him that you've had a second opinion and that he needs to do the right thing and honor the warranty.

If you don't follow that course of action, there is nothing we can do to help you. We all listened to the car and tried to diagnose it this weekend. I'm not trying to rag you here, but your options are seriously limited. Failure to follow this is just going to lead you to either spending for another complete rebuild, or causing bigger problems with the car.

They either left something in there, or didn't replace a worn part when they should have. You couldn't have roasted that trans in that short of a time if you'd tried.

Keep one thing in mind on the rebuild when you get it back:

One-wheel wonders are BAD with the amount of torque we produce. Don't EVER do it.

2-wheel burnouts (straight line only) are usually ok if the rebuild was performance-oriented (performance/HD parts installed in place of old OEM parts). A shift kit will extend the life of the trans, but CAN shorten the life of the Diff.
