    ^Thanks for digging down your old post, Chris. The D3 method is something I also do from time to time; Thanks for mentioning.

    Oh, no... I'd have that fixed, asap b/c e-brake is crucial to 6gen AT. (especially, when you have a brand new tranny.)

    The best thing you can do with your AT is throw it away. I don't miss mine at all.

    Buy an '02? I don't remember where exactly but I remember a big notion about how the AT was only bad 98-01.

    I'm @ 125k on my '02 V6. Still shifting like butter.

    My 99 was running strong at 133k. It went into another 6GA after mine.

    I'm at about 182,000. Mine is still the original, never rebuilt. But I doubt it will last another year or so, so I'm saving for a CL-S swap now
