    no, 90 was the diagnoses quote, but it was only 70.. they put some tracer fluid that went through the tranny and glowed (glew?) where it leaked and they will take the 70 off the work i get done.

    I went on ebay and got a big stacked cooler a while ago for $15. It seems to work great. My tranny temp. always stays down where it should be now. That quote makes a lot more sense. Glad to see you shopped around. I always get a pain when I hear someone say "Aamco said it would cost..." But that's just my opinion. I noticed that the Aamco bill said something about burnt fluid. Did this shop mention anything about it?
