Well my latest 700r4 has left me stranded 6 hours from home. This trans is in my 87 K5 with 35''s and 4.56's. It was professionally rebuilt with all new everything (nothing could be salvaged from the last time it blew up) and a pretty firm shift kit. It has the factory cooler plugged off (got metal in it from last time) and I had the tranny guy install a 24,000gvw cooler. The torque converter is brand new too. The cooler hard lines were flushed out. The trans lost OD in moab (about 700 miles ago) and then when it tried to shift to second, it lost all forward gears. I adjusted the t.v. cable in and tried it and then out and tried it, and still nothing. The fluid level and color is good, and the tranny never got hot. It has only 2014 miles on it. Should I be taking the tranny guy to court? He built this trans and my last one (that blew up after 300 miles) and now I am missing work and have to pay for towing, hotel, renting a trailer, diesel for the tow rig, and I still need a new trans! He gave me a 6 month warranty, but when I took it back last time, he told me to not come back! Is this worth taking him to court or am I screwed? What are my options for a stronger trans (I have to have OD and would really like to keep it auto) What is a fair price for a well built 700? Installation?
