Andrew is on the way to go take another pic of the trans fluid. Looks dirty.

Yeah the fluid looks burnt and the clip sounds like slipping clutches or tc bypassing?

I would get a tranny flush and fluid/filter done asap.

Flush like Wren, Pdad and I have suggested.

You should be happy about the personal call....

I totally can't believe this. :(

As said in PM, all work was done by ZZperformance off the standard build with a new Input Shaft and GM torque converter being put in.

I can't even really begin to guess what it could be, I do not know transmissions at all thus I paid so much for someone else to do it.

Grrr

The stock tranny took a TON of track passes and burnouts before It went.. if this one went out already after so little use ... Ugh.

To lighten the mood, I told ya that motor moves!!! :P

dad just saw the video.. from the experience he has... he says its done...

he does not trust driving it back to his shop which is 180 miles away...

he expects me to find a shop to put this in for me, and find the money all before it dies...

i need a realy tranny mechanic... can you guys get the word out please

Send a link to the video to zzp and let them know this is their transmission and it had limited use.

It doesn't hurt. I would still post it on clubgp in the general section, lotsa people with good knowledge there. THis doesn't make a lick of sense AT ALL. I'm at a loss. One of the bigger issues is that the 2000 year had specific tranny codes and the one in that car is the hardest to find hence I went with a rebuild instead of buying a used one.

Talk to zzp before you actually have any work done on it... though, it'* hard to get it out to Michigan.

This just blows. It'* not even my car anymore but I still feel horrible. I go through my mind trying to find anything I may have forgotten about that would make it my fault but I honestly can't think of anything. I just don't get how both parts of the drivetrain have failed in so short of a time.

speachless
