well, the plan was to replace the cooler lines while its empty. but the hose i have is too small to siphon the cold fluid. so for the time being im going to top it off, see if it fixes it and if it does, im going to drop the pan and replace the lines.

Your not going to lose a lot of fluid just by replacing lines. I just don't want you to spend all that money "flushing" the trans when there might actually be something more wrong with it.

You are checking the fluid level hot on a level surface correct?

yessir. it was about 1 qt low. ive been parking it on the bricks in the lawn for the past week, so i had no idea it was leaking. parked it on the driveway last night, and noticed that it was leaking near the lines. seems to be better after a 7 mile drive. took almost all left turns and slung it around most of them. (seemed to slip worse when cornering hard)

as of right now, its running good. will update when i get home from work tomorrow.

well, trans shifted awesome on the way to work. not one slip to speak of.


going to lunch, i hit a pot hole at full lock turning out of the parking lot...... needless to say, i got a tow home thanks to a busted axle.

my guess is one of 2 things, a) it was on its way out already, or b) my suspension compressed too much and ripped it out due to a too short axle. (non oem part from the looks of it) looks like it came out of its cup, but i cant tell for sure with the boot still on.

here is the situation.... the exit of the work parking lot is about a 25-30* angle, entering a crowned road. so its like im driving it into the low part of a washboard with a pot hole at the lowest part. that coupled with the fact i was on the brakes and the wheel was cranked all the way right, im guessing leverage had a role in this break. that, or it was just chance. who knows

back hurts from work too much to push it into the driveway and take a look. im off thursday though. ill take a peek at it then.
