    Hi i bought a used transmission from the slavage yard for around $700 it was said to have 100k miles on it well we installed it and it works besides when i come to a hard stop at a stop sign it wont go it takes about 20 secs then kicks in and takes off! I have filled it with fluid and lucas transmission fix but still no good. Could it be it dose'nt have enough fuild begin it shows full? or a dirty filter cause i have'nt replaced it or did i throw away $700 on a POS transsion?

    Sounds more like a torque converter issue, rather than transmission slippage.

    I filled it up with lots of fluid way pass the full mark and it seems to be working now. i guess it didn't have enough fluid in it.

    Auto trans use pressure to work, if it has a bad seal somewhere inside it could cause slipping, more fluid could be building more pressure making up for a pressure leak in the trans but could maybe hurt something else down the line, but if it works then it works :D

    Internally, there arent any seals. All o-rings in the clutch pack actuating pistions. But that isnt the problem. If it was a pressure issue, it would be with the valvebody. Low fluid can definitely cause those issues!

    phew ok so nothing to worry about. i know i put new front and rear seals in it before install to make sure they didn't start leaking again.
