    well guys i was taken my car for a bit of a cruise las night. I jus pulled out of the driveway and because this car has a auto transmission i tryed to change it from reverse to drive. it wld not click into gear. i was sittin there for about 15mins muken around with it b4 it decided to work. any ideas what could have caused this i am starten to worry i have owned 2 other cars with auto trans and this has never happened. the automatic trans and the engine have jus been rebuit so it is strange that it is stuffen up.

    Fill it immediately. Must be checked when hot and running. That would b your problem. Check if its leaking anywhere- most likely through the sump pan

    one more question my trasmission has a stage two shift kit and a 3000 stall converter. since it is not standard anymore is there a better fluid i use for this or it does not matter what i use?

    The best?

    I can say without a doubt- PM Lubricants. It's proven to lower running temperatures, further resist foaming and actually gives slightly more power as it doesnt thin out as much when hot.

    And it lasts a hell of a lot longer than normal fluid- after say 50 000k's send a sample to them, get a test (for free) and if all is well she should last another 50 at least. Their tranny fluids are being used in drag cars- and the auto's are lasting exceptionally well.

    Give them a call- (07) 3274 3788 or email info@pmlubricants.com.au They have all the information you need to make sure you make the right decision

    Hope this helps

    were you on a steep incline,the reason i asked my previous car a vc commodore
    would not let me shift the t bar to drive when the car was on an incline.When the car was on flat ground no problems.

    that may have had something to do with the fluid levels- could be low and not enough in the right places when on an incline
