So, I was driving back to washington from montana, and my speedometer starts flopping all over the place. Easy fix, vss sensor right? well I went to the next napa and got a new sensor, only to find out the pigtail was messed up, causing the erratic signal. I found a new pigtail, 75 miles away at another napa, so i started driving, as soon as I got back on the highway, my od light starts flashing, and send the tranny into "way to high line pressure because im slipping" mode, now I know that these trannys don't survive long with the od light flashing, but I continued driving because I had no other option. Long story short, I replaced the pigtail, disconnected the battery cables for 15 min, and drove like 200 more miles home without an issue, or a flashing od light.
But, now my fluid is significantly darker, and I'm wondering how much this e4od has left? It is shifting fine, like it always has, but I'm worried when the trans went into "oh sh*t" mode it damaged something.
I was considering dropping the pan and swapping the filter, or maybe doing a complete fluid flush, but I'm worried since there is so much material in the fluid now that its just gonna slip if I flush it out.
What do you guys think?
