Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Having just had my transmission rebuilt less than 2 months ago, my transmission is having some similar problems. When it's a hot day out and I've driven for a while, if I put it in reverse and don't move, it sounds like my brakes are slipping, but the sound comes from the tranny. Also, I've got an on-again, off-again hard shift from 1st to 2nd, and the shift from 3rd to 4th, which usually takes place right at 35MPH, will sometimes take place at almost 39MPH. Driving in rush hour now costs a lot of gas, because at 30MPH I've got a higher RPM than at 45 MPH.
