Re: Hello to all and a Vacuum question

Keep adding fluid and run it till it dies. I didn't flush the tranny, I think it needs the little sludge to actually make it work right now.... think of the trick used car salesman use to "fix" a worn out tranny... they dump a few handfulls of sawdust in to thicken up the fluid and make it run like new for a few months.

If your fluid gets to low and you take a very steep hill out on the trail, the fluid runs out of the TC, it will lock up without fluid and make your idle problem worse. This happened to me the last time and is what convinced me of the real problem.

Good luck with it.
