Send it out. It could apply to your vehicle. 98-6-5 Dated 03-30-98. Don't want to sound like the bad guy but had the same problem. Told my wife a 1,000,000 times to check the transmission oil because it has a slow leak. How long does it take ? She ran it
1 1/2 lts low. I now have to rebuild the transmission. How long does it take to put in new oil fittings ? Anyway i think your in the same boat but have your vehicle checked
for the tsb anyway. good luck
I haven't a clue when the car was manufactured. I am guessing that a TSB is related to a recall of some type but I doubt any recall would apply to a vehicle's transmission that was changed out with one from a junk yard because the original failed.
OIL LINES!!! No debate over that at all!!! YUP! I have to change them and I just might do it tomorrow. It sure would end the oil on my garage floor.
I put a quart of oil in the transmission today, let it heat up and found the oil level in the mid range of where its supposed to be with the engine running. Later I drove it a few miles but will put on many next week or so. I will be watching the "service engine" light carefully. If it does come back on with another P1744 fault I might take it to a transmission shop and get their input............hope that does not happen.
