It's been awhile. I was flat on my back with a terrible cold for over a week. I just got enough ambition to go crawl under the old beast yesterday and what do you think I found under there?
Every damned tranny pan bolt was about finger tight! Those crooks in CT NEVER looked inside the tranny at all. Well the dripping stopped as I tightend all the bolts up. I wiped it all down and got it nice and dry and stuck some fresh cardboard under the pan. had a look this afternoon and not a drop coming out now so one thing solved.
I'll be taking it to my mechanic the first of May for the Plenum gasket (I spotted oil droplets, looking through the TB) and a couple C notes should have me back in the saddle again. I think I'll spring for an Oil change and full lube while he has it too. Maybe a tranny flush and servicing would be a good idea.
Now then. If I still have shifting problems, ie; occaisionally won't go into 1st gear - shut down - restart - usually good to go then. Should I look into a sensor, module, something along those lines for the tranny before I dig into the pump?
