Re: 91 auto transmission slipping
Thanks for the help, I got an OBDII code reader I can try on it but I’d have to take it somewhere and pay to have it scanned by a real scanner. Thing is the darn thing shifts and acts great all the time except when first taking off from a stop. This is my boys “new” car so we haven’t had much time with it yet and I haven’t driven it much at all. I guess I can’t expect too much out of a good looking $700 car.
I do feel better now about it if it only costs $500 for a rebuild, my other recent auto tranny experiences have been with my powerstroke and the tranny in that thing costs over 2G.
The boy says it seems to be getting better, either that or he’s getting used to it, I hoped it was either air in the system or maybe the Lucas would help it. I also feared that it may have been the fluid, I don’t have a book for it and the O’riely parts store said it took dexron/mercon and sold him their store brand universal fluid and said it was the right thing for it. I run nothing but Mercon V from the Ford place in my truck. I guess I need to stop with my brief startup during fluid changes routine. I just wish the torque converters all had drain plugs like my original truck tranny did.
