No I haven't removed it yet, but plan to very shortly. I'll be able to get a better look at it all then.

I hope that is your problem. It would suck to R&R the transmission fo no reason.

yes... it would definately suck. But it wouldn't be for no reason, even if the problem weren't there (which it is). It's either the TC or the flywheel and several of the mechanics at our shop agree. Started pulling the tranny this evening- needless to say, it was definately needed regardless. Crawled underneath and as I was taking the housing bolts out i noticed at the top I could see a good amount of daylight. Obviously, the guys screwed my wife's grandfather over and didnt tighten the top bolts down. They also overtightened the passengers side lower nuts so much so that they twisted one of the wiring harnesses around. Left out the top driver's side stud and nut. I'd also like to add that when they pulled the driveshaft, they didn't check the rear u-joint- I say this because when I pulled the u-joint out of the yoke, the cap came off one of the ends and the bearings fell out. He hired them to do it after being referred by his son in law since it was his son in laws cousin and his nephew. So, in saying all that, it was definately worth it to start pulling the transmission anyway, if not to solve my original problem, but to survey what kind of damage these two wack jobs have caused me by not mounting the transmission properly.

Well, good luck. It sounds like they didn't do you any favors.
