Oh hey, would it be a good idea to put some lucas transmission fix in? Because that's totally what I'm doing.

It sounds like some other electrical issue is causing your problems. When you say you shifted to Low range, do you mean you placed the trans in "1" or "D" instead of "D" surrounded by the "O" (over drive)?

Also, is there any other weird electrical issues? Example, radio not working or, turning the headlights on causes the turn signals to light up solid?

When I say low gear, I mean manual first, like gear selector all the way to the right. I had thought at one point that it might be a TR sensor or something along those lines. I did, however, check all the solenoids and they all checked out fine as far as I know. I have everything almost put back together. I just have to reinstall the transmission mount while will be a pain considering I took the whole mount off to be able to get the valve body pan off. Updates tonight.

So after almost all of everything was put together, I look down at my drain pan and I see a check ball... Extremely frustrated right now... Well, another long night... ****.

That's happened to me more than once. Well not with taking the transmission apart, but with other things. You think I would have learned my lesson by now, but EVERY time I take the back seat off, I ALWAYS bolt it up then realize I left the seatbelts behind it! I did it tonight and got so frustrated lol. EVERY time (out of like 6 times I've done it).

Hate it when stuff gets put back together then you have to take it apart again. Good luck!

P.S. Make sure to put only Mercon V ATF back in!

Yeah, I got to the valve body and went to bed, haha. Then I started thinking, "how the hell am I going to get this transmission mount back on?"
Well I unbolted the frame from the car and lifted the front of the car up with a jack and a piece of wood. Easy enough. But just a general question, what's wrong with putting ATF+4 Full synthetic in?

The trans is spec'd for mercon V. They are picky about their fluids. Don't put anything else in. It can damage it.

Alrighty. Hey, whilst looking over the valve body and putting the check ball in and making sure everything was perfect, I saw one orange spring. All the rest were black. Here is a picture.

Has this been worked on before or is it just coincidence?
