Talked to shop today. They are still trying to figure out the problem.
They had to put in new clutches. It was modded to hold 4, and said seemed as
though 5 was tried to be put in it. They were not burned out, but blackened
from severe heat. Indications that this have been going on for a while.
Shop manager said that there are numerous mods done on the trans that make
the overall performance of the trans operate better.
They will have it together today to run fluid pressure test on it today to
find out where a restriction is in fluid flow that caused the clutches to
heat up like that.
Indications are either a restriction somewhere or a problem with torque
converter. The thing is I always kept my eye on trans temp gauge and the
most I ever saw it go up to was 280.
Anyone got ideas to this could happen?
So it seems better off I sent it to the shop.
