Makes perfect sense Bill. Now I understand. I think a flush is called for very soon, maybe in the mean time i park the car and use the Alero...?

that would be cool in in bonnieville. By the way I agree get it flush pro. I had corsia that I got the tranny to last another 8 month then the motor broke a rod. That car had 250,000 miles orignal tranny and engine. I knew the prevousi owner on it.

I just got back from Lube-X. I originally had the tranny flushed there in January at 157,000 kms...the manager who also flushed my tranny last time was like, wasnt this just in for a tranny flush hehe, rememberd the car. The fluid that came out was DARK loaded with clutch material. He ran a flush product through the tranny first, to help clean it out a bit better...car still basically drives the same..but if it prolongs its life, im happy with that.

well guys it was fine on the way to work today, when i went out for lunch, reverse is slipping a bit, and first is getting really bad
Tonight on the highway it runs as slightly higher rpms at crusing speeds, and takes alot of throttle to get it to downshift, my tranny is not long for this world now, at this rate, i say, Monday.
The car is a compleat dog in first, non stop slip sometimes.
