Re: Bad Transmission
Sorry to hear about that trans.
I had a similar experience with mine dying 3-4 yrs ago..E40D, going up Big Bear, Ca.
Most likely my fault for adding larger tires with a tall gear ratio..and inadequate trans cooling.
With that opportunity, made it better by getting a new one in for about $4000.00 built extra heavy duty with Steel Planetary 6 pinion (instead of aluminum), new valvebody springs, new accumulator body, new TransGo Shift Kit, new Solenoid Pack, new clutches, new Torque convertor longer filter that worked with a deeper trans pan (Derale Tubulator) and also adding an extra BMRacing Cooler (now with BMRacking Trans Cooler with Fan/Thermostat Switch).
I had initially called around for prices but everyone wanted more to make it bulletproof and attitude and I ended up using Orange Transmissions in Orange, Ca and had no issues with the rebuild. Expediately rebuilt in less then a week, kinda neat that they let me check out the old one pulled on their bench, looking for the defect. Nice Guys.
I think my lead tech who was burly trans guru, named Jose and the magic word for him is "bulletproof".
