Unfortunately, another replacement. I feel your pain, my original trans crapped at about 100,000 miles (OD gone), then the supposedly rebuilt with upgrades replacement I got crapped out on me this weekend after 30,000 (OD gone along with 3rd). Had to drive 100 miles in second gear to get home, taching 3500rpm to do 42mph....sucked.

Yes, looks like your OD clutch is failed. But the question is: why three times in a row? Something else may be the problem. What code are you getting re the TCM being bad?

I'm thinking you need to replace the OD clutch pack (again!), and I would also replace the TCM. Maybe that's what's been causing the problem all along...

One on my rules. If I get punched in the face every time I open a door I go to a different door. I would find a different shop.
