Driving the bonne 230 miles over 76 had the cruise set on 80. Doing good time and the car had no problems. WELL. I noticed mt RPMs creeping up so I started doing a TCC check and they weren't changing I figured it could probably use adjusting for a while. So I kept going. then I notice when I dropped down the 70 the RPM'* shot up to 4000. Trying to hold the panic in my face not to panic my passengers I pulled over. Not moving I could immediately smell the ATF Plugged in my scanner and I felt like a college freshman looking at a positive pregnancy test. To my horror it was up to 278 yes 278. I jumped out of the car and check the ATF a nice toasted tan. and even bubble on the dip stick. So I let it cool down and did the rest of the 20 miles at 70 and watching the TCC slip to keep it minimal. So yeah lesson learn.

Oh yeah Philly is alot diff. Than Jersey in that respect. Hope everything is a ok!
