I took my 03 in for a trans rebuild about 3 weeks ago.
The guy I took it to is supposed to be our local expert with about 35 years experience.
When I took it in, I told him it was slipping on the down shift from 4th to 3rd
and there was a vibration (grumbling noise) when down shifting from 2nd to 1st.
He rebuilt the trans, put in a rebuilt torque converter and shift cable. I already had the Dicktator fix on one end, but he said the cable was bending when going into park????
So, yesterday I went over to see what's up and he tells me it has a vibration on the UPSHIFT from 1st to 2nd. And he can get it to vibrate at 1800 RPM with car standing still and in gear.
I brought the R in early because I'm taking it to Florida in January. I hope it is done by then!!!!!
He said he had 1 more thing to try- take the bolts out of the torque converter and run it to see if it still has the vibration.
Thanks in advance, Walter
