I think if it doesn't get firmer by spring.. you'll be ready for clutches and a rebuild.

Why is everyone waiting until the cold of winter to change trans fluid? I do mine either in fall or spring.. Whichever comes first...

I haven't even changed mine yet. I meant to do it this summer. I hope there are no surprises when I drop the pan.

And yeah Ryan...do the shift kit when/if it'* rebuilt.

Do you have an adjustible trans modulator?
If not it'* less than $20 and it firms shifts.

He'* pushing a billion miles on the car. If his shifts got funky.. he'* probably getting ready for a freshen up.

It'* a shame that the trans in Worcester with teh beautifully clean "GM Rebuild" sticker on it is for a 95 EI
