I'm hoping someone knows a good answer to this...

It appears that my tranny has more fluid than necessary... what symptoms would this cause?

My car is unusually rough in gear at idle. Now this is when the tranny has to 'slip'. Would overfilling cause this?? How do I remove excess fluid? Can I syphon it out the dipstick hole? (I have some thin tubing handy)

Still cant figure out why its so rough in gear while stationary.

Thanks,

Brian

For the rough idle, you could have a vacuum leak or faulty spark plug wire end. A trip to the techs for a look at the scope might be in store. As for the tranny, when cold with the engine at idle, the fluid level should be 10mm below the bottom line on the stick. When hot it should be between the lines and never go above the top line./

Right... tranny fluid I can check..

When you say wire end, I assume you mean the 1 (k?)ohm resistor... Whats the best way to check the resistance of these (before I take it to the shop)? Remove lead at dist. and check the whole lead? Or can I remove the metal sheilding from around the resistor??

Thanks a lot!,
