    Car wont SHIFT

    Car shifts fine... until I floor it and then it just wants to redline and not fucking shift. I can't get a decent reading on the damn ATX transmission fluid so I have no clue if theres too much or too less. It reads different everytime. I'm just going to drain it out into a clean bucket, pour it into clean empty 5 quart oil jugs and then measure it out and put it back in. But how much fluid does it actually hold. It says 8 quarts... I put 4 in after the the tranny being out and mostly drained and its acting like its got way to much and was reading way up on the dipstick... so I've drained some but its sill acting up. Oh well with 1000 miles with too much tranny fluid probably means it's fried anyways.

    Sounds like the End Clutch problem.

    From Rich Murphy on 3000Spyders:
    Replaced the filter, new fluid, new end clutch including the pressure plates, o-rings, the whole 9 yards, I THINK from IPS Motorsports (not 100% sure), total bill including the filter and fluid was about $200 in parts and about 3 hours of labor (could probably do it again in less than 2 now that I know what to look for). Hardest part is getting those compression clips back on.

    There’s a write-up of how to do it, complete with pictures, on 3si.org and www.stealth316.com Make sure you replace ALL the parts that come with it. FYI, the new transmission filters are slightly different thickness and you will need the screws that they supply WITH the filter – your re-used old screws won’t be the right length.

    To check your fluid level, drive the car for a bit and let it warm up. Park on a level surface and leave the car running. Go up through all shifter positions P->L. Go back through all positions to park. Put the car in neutral and check the fluid level while still running.
