I hope it isn't dead
After the rad blew coolant in the tranny, I flushed it all out after adding some
seafoam trans tune and running till warm. Re-filled w/ mercon V and
new filter. Ran fine on some short trips back and forth to town. Started a
harsh 1-2 shift with a studder on engagement. Almost didn't make it home
the last time - it acted like it was not engaged at all. Now in the drive it
shifts HARD into Rev from park but hardly any forward engagement.
Could this be a stuck accumulator or is it more serious?
I am going to have to part with my bird if I have to do another tranny.
This makes my third one in 270K miles.
