Matt...Get the fluid changed up and you'll probably be good. With those low miles on that car..i'm sure it'* due for a change.

Afterall...it'* not a 4T60... the 65'* are proving themselves well as long as TM isn't removed.

Drop the pan and do the filter. See how it is after that.

I'm glad that you added the cooler from the 93...

But even the 65-E'* will heat up the fluid...

Once the fluid id oxodised the tranny can get clunky abd develop some shudders.... Change the fluid and filter now, and do it again in a few months... see if it helps
