Ok you're right. See? In my misery I'm not even thinking straight.
Tranny won't shift. Was low, full quart low, on ATF. Mech put 1 in I left. Tranny wasn't shifting. After really getting on it ( my way: hit it with a bigger hammer, or in this case mash the gas)
It up shifted, missed, slipped a little then fine, so on so forth. Got on the hiway, repeated the above process and smelled the bittersweet smell of antifreeze thru the vents, pretended it wasn't happening then pulled over and she was all done. Mechs guess: no up shift on the hiway, overheat, blown head gasket.
