Might have something to do with the ZZP pcm. ZZP isnt' known for the best off the shelf PCM. I'm running at the moment...will be thinking more on the symptoms though.

So today when i left from work, the engine and tranny were not warmed up yet. It slipped alittle and the rest of the shifts were that bad on the way home, they were a little jerky but not that bad.

Got home checked the fluid and its still really bubbly and its only a little bit past full.

Should i continue to drain more out?

If you see bubbles that means it'* overfull and pumping air instead of fluid., This is pretty bad for a trans, because it'll cause slip and wear out clutches etc quickly.

yes it seemed to run somewhat better. but when ever the tranny did slip, the engine was still somewhat cold and not up to 180 degrees. When i did my testing the engine was warm. So im hoping when i start the car today it will be fine.

So a little update. I checked the fluid while the engine was hot and it is right around the full mark, but there is still a quite a bit of little bubbles. And the shifting seems better BUT still takes a little longer to shift and jerks at times.

Since ive been running more fluid then i should of had for the past month, could it of screwed my tranny?
