Younger daughter just called. She went down south today. Her C4, which had been working so well before, is acting up again. Some of you might remember all the posts about no third shift, etc. Anyway, latest complaint is not going into gear when cold. Slipping betwen shifts. I wonder if the bands are slipping. Last fluid check, I found dark colored debris floating on the top of the stick. Maybe band friction material?
Tonight, I will check the band adjustments. Any other ideas?

Ya, I agree. Problem first showed last week. When I checked, it was quart low. I added fluid slow, with the engine at temp. I was below the don't add arrows and added maybe 4 oz. I checked again and the level was clear above the dont add whith lots of bubbles in it, (foaming).

Yup, checked level, warm, in park. I thought it was strange that the level would rise so far up the stick with just a little fluid added. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

I check level with car off and see.

I will get under, tonight, and do a once over. My bet is loose bands.

It waont take a second to drop the pan as I installed a drain plug.
