Default car keeps stalling

I think my transmission is on its last leg, but before i condem it to death i figured i should ask the experts. Here is what i have noticed. The car runs perfect until normal operating temperature then it will start bucking when i give it gas. As i slow to a stop the rpm'* are all over the place and the car will just stall. If I take the car out of gear all the symptoms go away, which is what makes me positive the trans is the culprit.

I will also add the i changed my trans fluid yesterday and i saw a couple pieces of metal and a lot of gold colored flacks.

Let the prognosis begin.

Whenever you find parts in the pan, the prognosis is not good. Time to head for the shop.

I wouldn't go that far my car does have 150,000 miles on it and i am in a loan at the moment so i dout the dealer would take the car back ( however i have had the car for like 4 months now and havent gotten a tag from them yet).

This was NOT the type of answer he was looking for.

On topic - Sometimes we can tell what it is by the color and shape of the parts.

your flaming is not appreciated here, if you feel that strongly about your car, then you probably shouldnt waste your time on our forum either

some peoples kids i tell ya



on topic... how big of pieces did you find in the pan, and what type of material did it appear to be?

There were a couple of silver pieces, i am asuming that those are from the torque converter. Then there was a lot of thin gold colored flakes, i would best describe the apperance of them as confety, from looking around on intense'* web site at the trans parts i would guess they are pieces of the clutches.

The gold colored flakes are most likely shavings from a bushing in the trans. The silver chunks could be just about anything, but no mater what they are, it is serious. I would not try to drive the car anywhere other than directly to your favorite tranny shop.

Keep in mind that a GM dealer can install a GM Goodwrench rebuilt trans that comes with a 3 year, 100,000 mile nation wide warranty for around $3,000 depending on where you live. That warranty is hard to match let alone beat when it comes to transmissions. And the price isn't that much higher (sometimes even lower) than a trans shop that will only give you 1 year, 12,000 mile warranty.

LOL, can you tell who I work for?

I will keep that i mind. I remember one of the venders on the forum saying they could rebuild the 4t65-e trans for like 900 bucks. I cant remember the details though.
