AUTOMATICS ARE COMPLICATED

. EVEN MORE SO, WITH THE NEWER STUFF THAT ARE TIED INTO A COMPUTER

AS FAR AS DIY:

INSURE YOUR TRANNY JUICE IS TO THE PROPER LEVEL. WITH THE EXACT, CORRECT FLUID IT CALLS FOR!

LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT TRANNYS IN THAT YEAR

IF YOU HAVE NEGLECTED YOUR TRANNY FILTER CHANGES. YOU MIGHT CATCH UP!

I JUST LOOKED AT "ADVANCE AUTO PARTS" ONLINEOF 3 FILTERS THEY OFFER, THEY RANGE FROM $13-$20. AND YOU ARE GONNA NEED SOME FLUID!

. OTHER THAN THAT, SEEK PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE

I'LL GIVE YOU A POSSIBLE "INSIDER" ON FINDING JUST THE RIGHT PLACE.

THE TRICK IS FINDING A SHOP THAT IS DEPENDABLE AND FAIR. SOME ARE A LOT FAIRER THAN OTHERS

. THE STEALERSHIP IS PROBABLY ON THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM

MAYBE THIS LINK BELOW, WOULD HELP YOU DECIDE WHO TO TAKE IT TO----THIS MAY BE YOUR GUY "FOREVER"---SO LETS NOT HAVE A 20 SECOND CONVERSATION DURING THE SELECTION PROCESS, ACTUALLY DISCUSS THIS STUFF A WHILE!

TRY DIFFERENT PARTS STORES---WE WANT A COLLAGE OF CANDIDATES---NOT JUST FROM ONE STORE. FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES THAT ARE NOT "IN THE INDUSTRY". ARE NOT REALLY RELIABLE SOURCES. THEY ARE USUALLY JUST OPINIONS

GO TO YOUR POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORES (MORE THAN ONE WOULD BE A PLUS!) ASK TO SPEAK TO THE "COMMERCIAL SALES MANAGER".

HE'S THE ONE SENDING PARTS TO THE LOCAL AUTO SHOPS----SOMETIMES THESE SHOPS ARE ALL OVER, AND ARE SORTA IN THE "TURF" OF ANOTHER PARTS STORE. THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO INVESTIGATE OTHER PARTS STORES

MOST LIKELY AS THE "MANAGER" HAS MADE IT THRU THE RANKS, HE HAS VISITED MANY OF THE LOCAL SHOPS AND HAS DELIVERED PARTS TO THEM FOR QUITE SOME TIME.

JUST FROM SEEING THESE OPERATIONS, HE MOST LIKELY WILL KNOW WHO DOES GREAT WORK, IN A TIMELY MANNER, AND POSSIBLY AT WONDERFUL RATES. AND ALSO THE ONES WHO WILL DO YOU WRONG

"I". MAYBE "YOU" ALSO, WANT CORRECT WORK PERFORMED----NOT NECESSARILY THE CHEAPEST!

YOUR KEY QUESTION TO ASK, JUST BEFORE YOUR CONVERSATION IS OVER: "WOULD YOU SEND YOUR OWN MAMA THERE?"

IF YOU HAPPEN TO TRY ANOTHER STORE. SEE IF THE SAME NAME(S) COME UP

PERSONALLY, I LIKE THOSE DECENT "WAY OUT" RURAL SHOPS THAT ARE WELL EQUIPPED

THE BIG SHOPS HAVE 5 "MANAGERS" (USUALLY ALL POSSESSING EXPENSIVE TOYS). ADVERTISE A LOT. YOU ARE PAYING FOR ALL OF THE "OVERHEAD", NOT A "FAIR" FIX

DO RETURN HERE AND LET US KNOW YOUR OUTCOME

IMMA JEEP GUY ('77 AND '46), MANUAL TRANNYS AND SIMPLE ENGINES ARE MY PREFERENCE!
