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

FWIW, my GMC only ever got generic Dexron III-rated ATF. Tough tranny! Someone on a different site said (my bold), If any transmission can take that......The 4L80E can, But to think the frictions didn't take a hit would be incorrect. You will lose a clutch pack eventually.....Probably the Directs. ...

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

I do remember seeing smoke coming out the dipstick tube. I think that was only on the initial discovery of it being low. At that point it had the remains of the load of Redline AFT that I had put in it when I got it. It may be the Redline helped save the day. Yeah, that motorhome sits sometimes for ...

Can we burn out an automatic tranny with low fluid?

I am sure many can and will, but here is my story of a survivor transmission: Memorial weekend I took my 2000 Chevy Class C motorhome (cutaway van chassis) at 27 feet long, with a 454 V8 and auto tranny, up from Detroit to Grayling, Michigan, about 200 miles away, only to find the tranny so low it w...

Re: What are you listening to?

That Tribute video you posted is great. I remember most of those scenes. Love when she slaps the daylights out of Shemp. There is a bio on her at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0570731/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm . Bachelor of Music degree from Chicago Musical College and a trained opera singer. Looks like sh...

Thanks. I don't see Christine in any classical CDs, but they do list a nice T-shirt of her:

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. Yep, quite a good looker. So is the one I posted from J...

Re: Manual cars face extinction as congestion triggers a clutch backlash

So, I've heard that, in an alternate universe, there is a planet like ours, except that the inhabitants ride 2-wheeled conveyances they referr to as "motorcycles". Do any of you know if, in that alternate universe, the "motorcycles" are also tending to stray from the Amish faith...

Re: Manual cars face extinction as congestion triggers a clutch backlash

The decline of the manual isn't just the US anymore. In Australia: "Figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries show just 13 per cent of all passenger cars sold in 2014 had a manual transmission, down from 33 per cent in 2000." The reasons are similar... Traffic, technology,...

Re: Tired of Junk Clutch Hydraulics

Whelp, I am hopeful. It is now three weeks since they bled the Ranger clutch hydraulics. This time they actually stood the Ranger up nearly onto the back bumper and bled it that way and the clutch is still working beautifully. There was a slight loss of pedal at first but it seems to have settled ou...

Re: Tired of Junk Clutch Hydraulics

Used to be if someone said they have a six speed it meant a manual six speed, but now the multi-speed-automatic craze is making that term useless as many brag about their six-or-more-speed automatics. My brother-in-law mentioned his kid bought a Focus with a 6-speed, and I thought the kid had his he...

Re: Spark Plug Wires

Ok, thanks. Guess I should not complain at 40,000 from a set of wires. It would miss even on initial cold start in the am. Odd thing is it was initially doing it worse in reverse. I think maybe that put more load on engine. Anyways, working great now. Guess we pitch those old wires and move on until...

Spark Plug Wires

Our 1999 Plymouth Voyager was having hesitation and missing on take off, pretty much only at idle and would smooth out with rpms. Not running the AC helped prevent this but then it worsened. I took a shot at throwing parts at it, since the plugs had been replaced 10,000 mile ago (gaps were up to 75%...
