Re: Can we burn out an automatic tranny with low fluid?

I'm guessing that the slipping wasn't from the clutch packs, but from the torque converter running low on fluid. If you had slipped the clutches very long, you would have burned them up, the fluid would smell smokey, and fixing the cooler line leak / adding trans fluid wouldn't bring it back to life...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Question for all: I have a serious interview coming up Monday at noon which I think I vented here when I went on my last interview for advice but this once again, is quite a unique scenario. Has anyone interviewed internally for a promotion with a different team, but are essentially interviewing wi...

Re: What are you listening to?

It may be that she just didn't have "the juice" to become a major opera star. I know that in some endeavors, it seems to help a lot if you have a family legacy thing going on. It could be that the talent is genetic, or it could be that the political, social, and monetary backing is what ge...

Re: What are you listening to?

Thanks. I don't see Christine in any classical CDs, but they do list a nice T-shirt of her: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HWIWP82/ To the untrained ear, she sounds like someone who would have been more well-known for her opera arias than for throwing a pie. It would be interesting to hear why her ca...

Re: What are you listening to?

I wonder if the lady in the stooge video ever recorded serious opera. I would like to look her up if I knew her name. As I recall, in the skit, the Stooges got run out of the place, but their trick also got the daughter recognized by her father as a great singer. ] Christine Cecilia McIntyre - It s...

Re: What are you listening to?

This one is another favorite of mine! :lol: If you watch the scene leading up to this, the singer is a doll and a genuinely talented soprano. The audio seems better during the recording scene than when the Stooges play the record of her voice. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Mew66bUg8SI/UWMmct21inI/AAAAA...
