How hard to rebuild?
If im going to rebuild my tranny in my shop class, taking it slow, with an instructor, how long/hard/$$$ will it be? My 1st-2nd shifts, well, they aren't there, i have to do it manually. Thinking its time for an overhaul. But then again it could be time for a trans command.
Guess this is a 2 in 1 post. Diagnosing the shifting trouble and rebuild.
Diagnosis: When cold, it shifts great, soft when not on it, hard when im on it, then when it gets warm, it wont shift from 1 to 2 without me stomping on it at 2500RPM. If i shift it with the stock, it will go right away, but usually when i put it back into D it locks up OD and lugs like ****. Trans was rebuilt ~35K Mi ago, under previous owner, full fluid, not burnt, added some lucas, no help. Unplugged batteries 1 hour, nothing.... Any advice?
