All this talk about the alternator. If you jacked the car up, the fluid may have sloshed in some new places. Where is the talk about jacking car up, checking trans fluid level (with car dead level) and topping off as necessary? Better yet, drain your tranny, drop the pan, change the filter, and re-fill with new fluid....till it runs out. I don't buy all this alternator stuff. Hell, if that's it, put it on a trickle charger over-nite and drive off! I think you are fixing the tranny through the cabin filter!~
