      He is correct. The tranny comes out for access to the two bolts that hold the slave cylinder in place and it would really be a bad decision to NOT replace the assembly at the same time.

      First step - refill the transmission fluid to the correct level. Check for the transmission operation at this point. If the operation is not OK and noises are not gone - then there is damage to the rebuilt transmission.

      The check engine light doesn't have to be ON to store a fault code.

      Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts or PepBoys will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes ( dtc ) stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

      2. Amazon.com has the code reader for less than $16.69 dollars + shipping
      Autel MaxiScan MS300 CAN Diagnostic Scan Tool for OBDII Vehicles

      3.Re-post the dtc's in here " answer question " for further assistance.

      Note: we need the dtc's to identify the sensor, there are a dozen different sensors to operate the car.

    Can't drive over 40-45 mph.
    Upon returning from a month long business trip I arrived home to find my battery was dead. So I bought a new battery and put it in. Since then (2 months ago) I have had issues accelerating. At first it really wasn't bad. I took it to get an oil change and 5 point ...

      You have an issue with the tranny. maybe there is a code stored for the tranny, maybe not. You could try changing the filter and fluid and see if it improves or fixes.

      Check up under the dash and see if the rear of the CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER is weeping brake fluid out the rear seal and then it drips down the inside firewall behind the floor covering. If this is what you see replace the clutch master.

    Low speeds seem to be normal. RPM's do not seem to be in sync on hwy. It will get up to speed, but takes longer once the vehicle is at 45mph plus. The first time this was noticed was yesterday, after the car had been sitting for nearly a month. It was raining, ...

      P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)
      Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required. inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S), replace it if necessary.
      Replace the catalytic converter, it was clogged.
      If you need to replace the catalytic converter that you replace it with an OEM unit. Second choice would be a high-quality replacement part.

      I am being told by the repair shop that the catalytic converter needs replaced. However, they are saying that I must use the GM cat or else my check engine light will stay on if I use any other brand. This is because all GM models comply with California law. I can't see spending 1500.00 on a job that could easily be done for 500.00 or less. Can I use a cat other than GM and be able to reset the engine light?

      I would not hesitate to use a Walker 16469 replacement catalytic converter or Dorman 674889 which seems lower in price, which in this application is actually the exhaust manifold combined with an integral converter. I see these online cheap enough. either will work fine. $500 or less at a shop I doubt. Pay $275 to $375 and do it yourself and then it comes out under $500. if a shop does it there will be normal markup of parts (that is how this business works, perfectly ok) so parts (dorman for example) will cost customer about 30% more than their cost (estimated) and labor will be about 2 hours. maybe you will come in under $750.
