The tranny finally went after 152,000 miles. I completely lost 3rd and 4th.
Anyway, I just had it rebuilt and picked it up from the shop and drove it to work. Shifts great in 1st and 2nd, but when it gets into 3rd it stutters and is very choppy. I accelerated a little and the car was struggling to go. Finally it shifted to 4th and ran smooth.
I talked to the transmision shop and they said that it's normal. And it takes a few runs for the car to run properly and adjust to the rebuild.
My thoughts: I know our vettes have to reprogram when something changes usually. Does anyone think that's what's happening? Or do you think the tranny's behavior is abnormal?
I would appreciate any thoughts on it. And also if anyone had this happen what was the end result.
thanks

I thought that would be the case. get the car back and it would be as good as new. The only other thing is that the car sat for a couple months before i took it in. Bu it runs fine until third gear! AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!

Hogwash. There is nothing that needs to be "learned"...etc. ANY shop that would say such a thing isn't worthy of working on a Pinto.

They screwed something up, period. It is SOOO easy to miss just one little thing and have something like that happen...I know this from experience! (only took me three teardowns to get it right... :L )
