Ok sorry for wrongfully accusing you. It must have been the previous owner.
Some people have no respect.

Well it looks like you will be able to enjoy the car once again. I am sure once you get it back and running, you will feel so much better.

HA!! and u thought it was over... so did i....

the drive home is 101.9 miles... 25 miles from home, with cruise control on, my RPM'* started jumping all over... i thought ****... pulled over instantly.. saw the red juice SHOOTING out... and killed the engine...

it appears that those 2 clips that john bought this morning were the wrongs ones also, just as adam/zzp had done before, and it only held till then... i will post pictures of this tomorrow...

i tried to fix it by putting the clip back in the groove to see if it would hold.. with my tugging on it, it appeared to be strong enough to get us home... i bought 6 more qts of trans fluid and topped her off... backed up out of the driveway i had pulled into, and pulled forward when i noticed a huge red puddle again....

IT DIDNT HOLD!!! at this point i was so frustrated i said **** it, and left it on the side of the road... we continued back to mankato, knowing all the parts stores were closed, and my car would prolly need to be towed.. we called ALL and i mean ALL of the parts stores in town... nobody was open.. EXCEPT bumper to bumper... i told them the situation and he offered to stay a bit later for us... ended up being about 10 min after close... i got the correct clip, and 6 more quarts, and went back to the car...

by this time it is completely dark, and downpouring...

the car which i was able to get under before, had sank in the mud and i was not able to get under it anymore.. we found a piece of plywood in teh ditch (thank you literers) and jacked er up... this is what i was working with

the reason he didnt use the old ones was becuase the previous one was wired in instead.... adam or zzp
What 'clips' are you talking about? As said, I have never touched the transmission in that car. All of the work was done by ZZP.

And to 2000SilverBullet, I did no more abuse to that car than anyone has done by drag racing. Anyway...
