TRANS

1991 Cadillac Brougham

Transmission problem
1991 Cadillac Brougham V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

HELLO CAR PRO'S, MY CAR WAS OVER HEATING SO I ADDED SOME COOLANT AND NOTICED ONE OF THE TRANSLINES WAS LEAKING. I STOPPED THE LEAK AND MAY HAVE ADDED TOO MUCH TRANSFLUID. AT FIRST I THOUGHT THE TIMING WAS OFF SO I CHECKED IT WITH A STROBE AND SEEN IT WAS WAY OFF.I RESET IT AND IT RAN NICE SHIFTED SMOOTH BUT WENT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM. SHIFTING ON THE HIGH END AND REALLY JERKING INTO THE SHIFT. I GUESS I SHOULD BLEED OFF SOME OF THE TRANNY FLUID AND TRY AGAIN. CAN OVER FILLING THE TRANS COMBINED WIH AN OVER HEATING SITUATION LEAD TO TIMING PROBLEMS? THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND ADVICE. MIKE
