Drivetrain Issue

On the way back from Atlanta, the car did a very weird thing. I was cruising along at 80 and all of the sudden it jerked or bucked - hard. Hard enough it felt like I ran over something.

I think it shifted out of OD or unlocked the torque converter for a moment, but it went right back to where it was -except of course at a lower speed. I got off the next exit and looked for any clues - nothing.

Seemed fine the rest of the way home but I was driving more reserved after that.

I think I may pull the tranny pan and rear cover from the differential and peek around.

Any thoughts or ideas?

That sounds like the od band slipped. Be gentle on that thing I still can't believe that 93 trans has taken the abuse you've thrown at it.
Is the mlps the updated one?

Be gentle?! Ha!

Never.

I have a new MLPS to install.

But I've been thinking of upgrading to a Stage IV tranny before spring.
