Default '89 LE - Transmission Flushed

YAY, I just got my trans flushed...I dont think I have EVER felt ANY transmission shift as smooth as mine does now. I always thought that just because the car was old that it was normal to have it clunk or drop or slip and clunk into gear. Well now..it feels like a brand new transmission. I cant even feel it shift. AT ALL. When i'm on the road, it shift seamlessly, when I am putting or taking it out of gear it all happens with out ANY movement! ITS AMAZING!!! UNBELIEVEABLE!!! I AM ECSTATIC!!!

This is humorous to me. Glad to see you did it and enjoy the results. Please add a fliter/fluid service to your regiment about every 30K or 3 years.

The funny part is the fuild was probably older than you are...

In 12 months you'll notice that shift again... These transmissions tend to overheat the fluid...

I try to change the fluid at least once a year, herlps keep the trans happy

Boosty: Hah, is it really? Well it says to do it every 15k or yearly...so..im gonna do it yearly! And well the fluid is actually not that old because last year I drained and refilled..but the fluid then was BLACK..and this time is was brown..so yah, that fluid no longer had its lube properties of thats what ur getting at...
JR's3800:yep, sounds like a plan...i have never been happier, i think I would have to do it or i would not sleep!
