    Correct me if I'm wrong, but "fixing it the right way" requires specialized skills and equipment well beyond those that most of us possess? I know good techs who have no compunctions overhauling a manual, but they who won't touch a slushbox because they know they don't have "the right stuff". I suppose a few people probably do have it, but feedback from customers indicates that they are few and far between at best.

    So let me pose a hypothetical: Let's say someone had one of these transmissions and really did want to "fix it right". Where should they go to get it done, how much would it cost, and how long would it take?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    And let's also remember that this transmission was "professionally rebuilt" 30k or so ago. I'm not sure how anyone could not find this thread informative and learn from it. Thanks again to all.

    Agreed........... I can rebuild the transmission from top to bottom.
    I aforementioned that the parts in order to do so.......... exceed the cost of labor and a new unit from the dealer.
