It was leaking a little fluid for a while there. I attributed that to the dipstick grommet where it enters the tranny itself, which was torn. Remember that this car has moved about 20 miles in 6 or 7 months, so it didn't seem like an emergency. Recently, I replaced that grommet and thought I'd be done with the issue. Two days ago, I topped off the fluid and was going to take it for a spin.....I got about a block and had to turn around and go home. The car wouldn't build boost, it was moving like a slug- at the very top of first gear it started to act like it was going to start making some power, then second would come in the the car would go back to almost no power at all. At the top of third (by now I'm going about 30 mph, but the pedal's been way down all this time) it just redlined and refused to shift into fourth. Not knowing WTF is going on, I took it back home and parked it (had to go to work) and figured I'd look at it later. Well, last night I went out there only to find about a quart of ATF all over the floor. Any diagnosis, tranny guys? I hate this car.
