Re: transmission started slipping
I just got back from town in it. It has been sitting for two weeks other than I'd start it to let it idle for a few minutes every three days or so. I had a friend over here but by no means a mechanic. We checked the fluid level again after taking it for a ride to town and back following the procedures in the manual. It was low on fluid, again. After two quarts of Mercon V everything straightened out and I am pretty stoked except for the fact that after another ride on this hot July day in Alabama, the fluid started leaking out of that hole and somewhere above and to the passenger side, slightly. I'm a carpenter, but I'm thinking there is a seal leaking. Since it is Sunday, all the shops are closed. Thanks for the feedback. I may need more as I sort this out. I wish I could afford to drop it off and have someone fix it but like I said, the truck was given to me by my father in his Will. There is no way I could afford to buy it. I'm just lucky and want to take great care of it!
