      Yes, check and refill the transmission fluid. Then, go to the Advance Auto store to request refund assistance for the trans fluid that was incorrectly drained out.

    Trans shop installed new valve body. Symptons eliminated except for thud going from 2nd to 1st, Shop says ok.
    The trans shop is saying there is a "learning" period with new valve body, that this will stop after 100 miles or so. Does not sound right to me. Thuds downshifting from 2nd to 1st are variable; sometimes hardly discernable, sometimes more like a slam and ...

      You did not need a new valve body & I would believe you got a used one

      After a transmission is installed as new in the factory when the vehicle is build
      ALL trans parts are then called Hard Parts

      They are from damaged vehicles or salvage yard Not New,Never New

      I think they should have rebuilt it & installed new solenoids &
      done all the updates & your wouldn't be where your at

      Not right

      Do NOT use the car like that
      You will ruin that trans in 25 miles of driving

      The shop could have done any relearns

      Why not clean the old valve body?
      Nothing gained with someone else"s used piece

      Was the trans rebuild completely

      $2,000 is almost a rebuild,certainly not a used valve body install

      Car & trans have to be properly diagnosed before you can resume
      using it

      They put a new valve body in, not a rebuilt old one.

      No trans fluid additive will make for a fix

      In fact if you already have internal damage it may slip worse

      So forget the Lucus & other products

      Just changing the fluid may cause it it slip if is already & your
      not aware of the problem or how to test for it

      You remove the bolts holding the pan on the bottom of the transaxle
      There will not be a drain plug

      Make sure you use the correct fluid if you do change it

      May not be a filter in there to change just a screen you forget about

      I would say get rid of it if the trans is not working as new fluid may bring
      it to a complete halt.

      If you want to get a free road test & evaluation go to a trans shop

      Just keep in mind you paid $500 for the car & the shops job is to
      pitch a complete rebuild for $3,500

      You may need that but a 1990 vehicle is pretty well used up

      3rd gear only could be several things but nothing your going to do yourself
      or get at ,such as a shift solenoid or the need to clean the valve body

      Pretty much have to pull the trans to do that
