Default A great day!

Well started my day with not a whole lot going on and about 4 o clock i got a phone call asking if i still had the buick....Said yes yes i do...He asked ''would you trade?'' i said maybe what for and he offers me a 1997 Buick Lesabre..140k on it..I said hmm ill come check it out got there and he told me the trans slips kinda...i said okay and long story short we traded.....

I drove it home and its just kind of shuttery...Well before i left i pulled the trans dipstick and the fluid is BLACK....so tomorrows schedule is change the fluid and filter...Its a nice clean car..I love it lol so hope the new fluid and filter fixes it !!! Pics tomorrow

Slipping means burning. here'* to hopping a fluid change cleans it up.

My fluid wasn't black, but a poor man'* fluid exchange (i.e., a pan that leaked for weeks) fixed almost all of my shuddering issues.
