I ran an Art Carr shift kit in my AOD, and liked it.

I thought Mercon V was a bad idea in an AOD.

I've got a small delay in during the shift into drive from park, nuetral, or reverse. Do you have any idea if that'll help or is it time for a rebuild?

The reason Mercon V isn't recommended for AODs is because it makes 'em leak, the factory seals can't handle it.

I didnt think it was too bad (transgo), but I like to think I have a pretty good head on my shoulders. I wouldnt attempt it if you havent done too much wrenching on cars.

I put merc V in when I did it (before I knew about the seal problem). Next time I change the tranny filter I think I'm gonna drain everything and go back to merc III just to be on the safe side


I also have a nasty buzzing sound coming from the tranny. Any ideas on that?

I installed the Baumann kit in my AOD years ago. It's not hard but you do have to really watch what you are doing. The big thing on the AOD is to get the TV cable right.
