Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.

Before we get started though, please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see,smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is appreciated.

My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for my time.Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

This is called water/moisture intrusion, and the most likely cause is the connectors to the transmission may be getting moisture in them. Disconnect, clean pins and add dielectric grease to all the pins. This will keep out the moisture. You can buy this grease at your parts store.

Thanks, Ron
