Transmission Saga

The trans fluid was very low when I picked up the van

20160503_105104We filled it and it drove well for a hundred miles or so, then a noise started

As I was working on the emissions & tune up, I ignored the other noises.. until the van lost all power

At times I could press down on the gas, and the engine would rev up, but the van wouldnt move at all..

20160511_135027With the help of friends, we determined it was simply low on fluid. So after a filter change, gasket replacement and refill, the van was running strong again, with a small leak that will still need to be addressed

Eventually I was through emissions, and had the AZ license plate. All the work on the transmission left me knowing more about , and adding it to the short list of things to repair when more funds are available
