I once had a similar problem with a '79 El Camino......it ate trannys. I was given advice from an old mech. who told me to check the tranny mount, see if it's putting the tranny in a bind...or...make sure the dowels aren't burred, causing it to be slightly off flush with the engine block, thus putting the shaft in a bind....hope you find the problem.............

Have the coolant lines been flushed each time the tranny was replaced?

How about the converter? Replaced or same one?

depend on each transmission failure, could be cooler in radiator stop up and planet failure would result. or trans isn't the problem and wiring is, you need to let someone look at the car to determine what your trouble may be guessing isn't getting the job done.

tranny

I always flush the lines when I change filters, or drop the pan to do anything.... cheap insurance. Check for wear on the converter, see if by some chance theres any evidence of friction, but I used the same one..on the other hand, if you'll have peace of mind, and happen to know where you can pick one up........
