Default Tranny NEW UPDATE.

I was chattng with Rouge last night on this, at the time, we both figured it was the heat that caused this..but i dont know now.
Story is:
Yesturday, traffic jam on the highway, everyon was stopped/crawling, car warmed up to abouit 210 degrees, every time i would press the gas to move, the car would rev to whatever then clunk into gear, the shift into second was sloppy as well. The problem seemed to be gone afterward that night after letting it cool off, and then taking it out it was shifting fine. Then this morning, i notice its got a small slip in first gear, if u accelerate normally (car in 1st) then give it more heavier throttle u can feel it kinda let go, then engage again with more a solid clunk.
So today when i got home, i drained about two quarts of ATF from the tranny cooler line, dont worry, i was topping it up as i went along..
heres what it looks like.

It does not smell burnt, it smells perfectly fine.

Hmmmm... How long did that bottle sit, before you shot the pic?

Its normal to have a varying amount of friction material in there, but thats looking a little thick.... I'd like to know how much friction material will settle to the bottom of the container... If its more than a very light amount, like a fine powder coating in the bottom of the bottle than I'd say that you have a problem... And the fluid does not look overheated... This just doesn't look good..

Does 3rd and OD function?

Than chances are the A and B shift solenoids are good...

I'm am at a loss with you tranny problems... I think something may be calling it quits.... I'm just sorry to hear you are having problems....

I'd say if it has sat more than an hour, that should be plenty of time for the particles to settle out..

You might have differing final drive ratios with a Park Av tranny?
