98 Grand Prix trans rebuild

5 posts in this topic

Ive fot a 98 Gtp that first gear slips on. Its been sliping for about a year but if you take it easy in first it is fine. Also when you pull out to pass someone it kinda acts wierd too. It feels like it unlocks the torque converter then relockes it a couple times, seems like it cant decide if it wants to be locked or unlocked. If you give it a little bit more gas so it shifts down to third it is fine. This is the third trans Ive had in this car, first one lost all gears second one lost third. I replaced both of them with used ones from junkyard. Im getting tired of putting in trannys! Is it possible for a person to rebuild this trans at home? Is it really that complicated or can a pretty mechanicly inclined person do it with a good manual? Am I just asking for trouble?

You are asking for a world of trouble. I have done dozens of th350 and 400 in the garage, but wouldn't even attempt to crack open these computerized trannies. Before you condenm it have it scanned. Maybe you could get lucky and it is a solinoid sticking or something.

Are there any good shops in the Cambrige area? I took it in when the last one went I took it in and I really dont think they did anything. Just drove it and said "yep its slipping, a new one is $XXXX". Is there anyone in the area that actually works on them rather than just replacing them? I think it is abolutly rediculas that people dont service transmissions, and just replace them at the drop of a hat. Like anyfishwilldo said its probly a solinoid or bad cluthes but most places dont fix them they just replace them.

A GM dealer can give a good computer diagnosis of the problem but as far as a good shop I'm at a loss.

I too recommend a dealer. They will be the best for diagnosing the problem, and know of comon concerns.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
