OK, so still oil in water. did you have the cylinder head checked for cracks when you had it off?

Hello ???

If its still overheating and developing oil in the coolant then that is the next step. Water pump is isolated from the oil system so that is not the issue.

One mechanic says its the transmission, I think its something to do with the torque conversion part or it, not a specific gear. Aweful vibration but only in the right combination of engine speed and gear. When the car downshifts and coast to a stop, the noise/vibration vanishes. When I start accelerating it doesn't start until the car is appraoaching what I would guess is fourth gear. But the symtoms come and go throughout the upper gears. I was going to do a ATF and filter change to eliminate that part. The fluid is full and doesn't seem discolored. … read more
