Well are you 100% sure it's the tranny? I'd rip it out and have turner fix it, either that or buy a used unit, throw that in, and while u have a working car- take the time to fix the broken one and sell it

All my tranny fluid is somewhere on the side of the road. Hopefully that's all it is. Gotta check to see if the drain plug some how popped off later today. Yeah, it's an auto, I have a getrag 6 speed in my garage but the guy that was gonna do the conversion next month is In Boston. Now I have to figure how I'm gonna get the car to him.

From Providence it should be about an hour, really depends on traffic though. The meet is gonna be in the Boston area. I live right on the CT/RI border in Pawcatuck/Westerly line. Maybe we can do a cruise to the meet. Assuming my car is back up and running in time

Guess not. Well I had my car running again the other day. Then today, boom! same stupid hose popped out. I need a new tranny cooler hose. Preferably a high performance one and a better way to secure it, just incase. I should still be good for the meet day. I'll keep you guys updated.
