July 15, 2007yea i know that flushing and putting a new filter and fluid in it will only patch the problem for a little bit...then it will be back to the way it was...i got lucky i did manage to get it home before it totally went out...so i didnt have a tow bill...im gonna go ahead and have it rebuilt...i want to get an aftermarket converter and put a shift kit in the new trans...not a racing shift kit...just something to give a little firmer shift....i also priced them high performance transmissions i mentioned above...they are way out of my price rage due to the fact they are anywhere from 1600 and up and then u gotta get a transmission man to put them it....so tack another probally 5 to 600 dollars labor...ill be better off just gettin it rebuilt and telling them i want a shift kit put in it and an aftermarket converter

July 15, 2007Well my brothers wasnt burnt, it was starting to slip real bad.And he has put another 20k on it with no problem.IMO seems like it cant hurt to try it,but I guess if you have $1600 laying around,go for it.Good luck.
If your not having fun, whats the point!?
July 16, 2007So the guy who had it before you tore it up. That Sucks!
July 16, 2007I had some clutches go out in my 2000 and the debris clogged up the shift solenoids and the truck wouldn't move if it had been running long. You'd kill it, let it sit for a while, and crank it then it would move a little. But it needed rebuilding. Sounds like you need one too! Yay! Welcome to the transmission rebuild club! It's so fun!
