    The van has decided to become a racecar and only up shift at 4200 rpm. And downshift at 2300. Why does a torque converter need a solenoid?

    Anyone looking for a garage tv setup? Samsung 42" tv with blown speakers, but including a sound bar that works perfectly! $55. Pics are dusty.

    Mine lost ability to lockup the converter clutch randomly. Turns out the connection from the transmission to the wiring harness was corroded, and a shop soldered on a new connection. its been fine since. Worth a check

    Good to know! Any idea if it can be driven that way?

    The main code I had was p2759. mine just wouldn't lock up the converter or occasionally not into overdrive, but shifted normally otherwise. something about the converter clutch not responding also locked it out of OD. It was also kinda random when it threw the cel.

    I'd guess it probably builds a lot of heat in the transmission without the lockup.

    went to ace hardware and got all stainless m6 hardware (btw their metric selection is leaps and bounds better than Lowe’s or Home Depot if you ever need a good variety and inventory of metric hardware). What a difference that made over the crap stuff that came with it.
    Rack is now on, and I siliconed the threads of the five bolts going into the roof on each side as well as around the foam gasket. Hoping that keeps any leaks out.

    If you're lucky, some Ace's and/or Pleasants hardware will carry JIS hardware, which is mega nice on the larger fasteners. JIS hardware tends to favor more compact bolt heads, whereas bald eagle flavor metric bolts tend to have massive pancake heads for whatever reason.

    Also nice to use the same wrench/socket on all fasteners the same bolt size if everything is all one standard

    Thanks for the tip.

    have you used this before? This is what I sealed the bolts with as it was all I had in hand.

    I haven't done anything with a roof rack, so I'm not sure on that one. Just looking at information on the pic, that seems like it should do the trick

    He should have split that off both sides. Equal opportunity for shin injury.

    Yeah. You just leave the back doors open. It hooks on the floor inside.
