Crap. Well, the transmission isn't low on fluid. I put the car up on four jack stands, as level as I could make it, carefully removed the fill plug, and fluid immediately came gushing out. I replaced the plug very quickly, so I lost very little fluid, but the "low on fluid" theory seems to be dead. Anything else, before I start looking for someone locally who can rebuild one of these units? Can anyone elaborate on the "pump priming" theory, and what's involved with diagnosing this? Thanks.
