Default Torque converter clutch or circuit...

Who says that extended warranties are a waste!?

Now, let'* see if the dealer honors it. I suspected the tranny was going out for about 6 months now. It finally threw up a service light so I took it into my buddy'* shop to check it out.

Anyone else had this happen?

I'm here waiting for mine to die on me...wishing now I had gotten the extended warranty. Oh well, at least now I can justify putting in some performance parts when I get it rebuilt...can't do that with a warranty! Gotta look on the bright side, right?

Absolutely. :p

I was mulling this over, though...should I just trade my bonnie in for a new GTO?

Is that wrong?
