How many miles are on your car? If you've got a lot of miles it's probably best just to leave it alone until it dies in most cases, unfortunately. However, if you don't have really high miles, you'd probably be better off to get a full tranny service - get the fluid flushed and get the filter and everything changed. It's sort of your call if you want to risk messing with it. Sometimes the things get to the point where there's stuff in the fluid and that's all that's keeping the friction for the tranny to work (I'm not good at explaining that). But it doesn't sound like yours is that bad... not yet anyways.Originally posted by 97vulcan@May 6 2004, 08:57 PM
I think I have the torque converter shutter, because everytime I give my car gas when it drops into overdrive, it shakes a little. Someone on the board told me to add "friction Modifiers" But I didn't because I don't wanna screw up the trans. anymore than it is. Will the modifiers actually help??? and how much would I add?
