Sorry to hear about this Chris!! Man that sucks. Hopefully it is something in the valve body & you will just R&R it & be done. What about the check ball & spring in the VB? Did your trans guy ask you about that?

I have not dropped the valve body plate yet, just the body. I am hoping all the check balls are there, if not that may explain a lot. I will post up tomorrow night when I finish installing the new valve body.

New valve body is in, she has 2nd and 3rd now but it shifts WAY to late at real high rpm. I looked at the vacuum modulator and its a high vacuum single red stripe unit. My car only pulls 8-9" of vacuum at idle so I ordered a low vacuum performance unit from B&M, hope it works. :evil:
