    This is bad.. I would have your line pressures checked, and maybe a tranny pan drop and filter change would help, but its doubtful...

    How is the fluid...???

    My best bet would be drive it until it dies, and start saving for a new one...

    WElcome to the forums.. Thanks for signing up
