Re: TF999???/ How long should re-built autos last???
did you get a warrenty in wirting when they rebuilt it?
if so take it back and say fix it.
better yet have your mother or another adult do it.
not to deisrepect you in anyway, but as a 17 year old kid its hard to get them to do anything ( I know I was 17 too)
if you dont have a warrenty in writing itll be alot harder.
check the fluid level and filter first, but something still amisss if the filter is clogged already, or the level is wrong after such a short time after the rebuild.
is the kickdown linkage working properly?
if you remove and install it, no one will warrenty it, its hard to cover for all the stuff that could happen when someone else installs your work, too many things that could cause it to mess up later.
usually, check the fluid while the engine/trans is at operating temp ( drive t for a while first) then on level ground, in nuetral, or park, I cant recall which, I think at idle.
the dipstick should say on it what position to check the fluid in ( park or neutral)
too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
