Hoosier Hurricane (1/7/2019)
Thanks for the reply.
What is confusing to me is how it only does this when I come to a stop while driving.
If I start the car now and put it in drive it will whine for about 5 seconds and go into gear and stay in gear.
Driving how ever coming to a stop it just went into neutral basically and whined and stayed whining while sitting still like it was low on fluid.
I just wish I could figure out what I could do to make it useable so I wont ruin a rebuilt Holley 4000 or another battery with having the car sit.
I contacted a few local transmission shops one replied back that a rebuild would be $2,500 for this transmission with me pulling the transmission out myself. But said it would be a 7 to 8 week turn around as they have to ship it to Jasper for rebuilding.
I emailed Jasper just now to see how much they charge for rebuilding as I honestly believe $2,500 is too much money for a rebuild on this transmission when a rebuild kit is only $150. I figured the transmission rebuild would be around $1,000 maybe $1,200 but surely not over $1,500. I can buy a new rebuilt C6 transmission for my 82 F150 truck for $2,500.
I have one other last shot I will be calling a local shop by the name of Timeless Texas Classics they are off US 71 not far from where I will be moving to. Going to call him up and see if he can do the transmission for me or if he can recommend someone. Also want to get a price from him if he does rebuilds himself.
I just will do like Charlie from Charlies Transmissions has recommended to me by making sure they use more modern paper style clutches in the rebuild so I can run Dextron transmission fluid.
If I remember to I will try to get a video tonight or tomorrow showing how it goes into gear and stays in gear in D when sitting still to show what its doing that is causing me to be totally confused on how it can slip out of gear in D in one situation and not the other. Causing me lots of headaches for sure.
