What type of vehicle? Stock OE vehicle , custom install , street rod?

How is the trans set to lock up the converter clutch?

Hydraulic lock up?

Electric lock up with an internal pressure switch?

How many miles on the trans?

Recent install of this trans?

Repair work on the vehicle recently?

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
