I just bought a 1985 olds toronado, the tranny does not work, it wont even try to go forward or reverse. I am sure the tranny is toast, is there something else that may be wrong. Also I am very mechanically inclined, can this be rebuild fairly easy. I have rebuilt a turbo 350 before. thanks

If it has oil, and the linkage is hooked up, then it is coming out. BTW, this is a tough unit to R and I as well as overhaul.

I dont understand you reponse, what does the R mean. I am not good with abreviations.

I would assume the R and I would mean remove and install. My estimator shows 5.5 to 6.5 hours on the removal and 5.4 to 8.1 hours on the rebuild.

duke350, correct on all points, thanks for kicking in on the clarification.

Yeah, I figured I was wrong you kinda had me stumped, after I thought it was rebuild for R the rest wasn't making since because I thought you meant I for being you and was trying to figure out the wording, I'm with the other guy I'm not good with abbreviations.
