Hello gang, So I've had my '80 Córdoba for about a week and a half now. (It's got the 318 (5.2L) in it btw) For the first week, it ran great (the engine still does) then all of a sudden the transmission started acting up today, first this morning as I arrived at work, trying to back into my parking spot, putting it in reverse, it started to buck and shudder. Of course I was to start working at 9am so I couldn't do anything with it until I got off. Then when 5pm finally came, I left work and got in the car to see what was what. Well, the cold transmission seemed fine at first and thought that maybe my experience in the morning was just a fluke.. but no, as I got a couple miles down the road, I noticed the tranny was now starting to slip heavily in all forward gears, until finally I had nothing. I slowed down to about 10mph and it picked up 1st gear for a minute, but then nothing again. I ended up having to pull it off the road and called my buddy to come tow it the rest of the way home. So.. now I know why I got such a good deal on the car lol! Sure seems funny that the transmission would go out a week into owning the car... Anyway, I DO remember messing with the linkage by the carb the other night, but wouldn't think that would cause the tranny to completely go out. Would it? I am very mechanically inclined, but I've never done anything to an automatic transmission other than change input and output sensors. I've read a couple things about "adjusting bands"... but I doubt that would help this one slipping so bad. Would it? My other questions are; which transmissions fit in this car with the 318? Which transmission do I have? (It's a 1980 with column shift) I'd be looking for a direct bolt in swap without having to make any modifications. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
