HERE is current situation-- what is this I found in my trans pan and where does it go?
May I ask a few questions??
hope its ok...
when I dropped the pan I got a little over a gallon of fluid out... but only 3 qts. went back in...
could I have been overfull from a machine flush??
I have some Mercon V in the trunk just incase I notice it low in the next few days or weeks....
everything seems fine, except...
it seems to take a second ( its just not ready to go forward maybe 1/2 a second) to shift into gear from park or reverse.
my driveway slopes to the street and it will actually start to roll backward a smidge and then its fine.
Its great around town and on the highway.
Have I caused this with the pan drop?( the car is so new to me I am not sure if this is how it was, but I don't think so)... or is this an indicator that I need to have it machine flushed? *** I did not rotate the motor and drain the converter*** or do the flush thing with the top transmission cooler line***
could it get worse after a flush? or is that slight delay an actual slip? (Doesn't make any noises, whines or clunks-just takes an instant to be ready to go ) or do you think fresh fluid would make it better?
I am thinking it was 85000 mile fluid in the pan possibly 55000 mile fluid but I do not see it was done in the service records I have..
Thanks for your help... I hope I am not bothering you.
