#1

Hard shifting when cold. Shifts roughly at around 45 mph…Kinds slips/clunks into reverse…Do i need to replace tranny. It was rebuilt about 100,000 miles ago… Or is there an easier softer way…


#2

During the last 100K miles, how often have you changed the transmission fluid?


#3

I am not sure if was changed but the oil is pretty black…


#4

Black fluid = overheated transmission. It needs to be rebuilt again. Automatics need to be serviced every 25-30k miles regardless of what owners manual says. This transmission probably could have lasted much longer with proper care.
