Try a filter & fluid change before pitching the towel in. Valve body could be sticking or filter plugged. Not a big investment.

I'd start with trans fluid & filter change, then drive it moderately for about 200 miles. If trans goes to long recirculating old fluid through trans filter they tend to gum up valvebody & solenoids. Hopefully that's all that it is.

let us know what it is, if you pursue it further. Maybe we can accumulate a bunch of transmission info on ALL trans - sticks & autos for an info section on trans'.

yeah that would be cool, if it is too messed up ill put in a 5 speed, and finally fix everything on my car. Well I guess 70% chance of me doing that, or just doing the bare minimum to have it running smoothly and sell it.

yeah it is kind of annoying so right now im putting in new mid speakers I got for $25 shipped!, checking spark plugs/coils, oil leak, had for over a year now, power steering leaks, tail light problem when I turn on my headlights it blows out my instrument cluster, and right tail light, im going to be working on this for a while...

thanks yeah. And it literally happened out of nowhere so not much I could do to fix it. I drove it around the block after new plugs and it helped a lot! And im not going to do anything to the auto tranny because im putting in a manual. I've been working on my truck for a while so it should be good soon, still backfires, so ill get it registered, fix that and go offroading!
