Tightened up exhaust bolts and decided to adjust the kickdown cable after installing new carpet awhile back.

What a huge difference. I don't think it was properly adjusted from the beginning. It launches tons better and passing gear kicks in badass.

Freaking awesome.

Okay, I tightened up the rear suspension bolts and dropped her back on the ground. Also topped off fluids.

So there's nothing left to do but go for a spin right? Well I had my boss come along as a chance car in case anything happened. Well she rolled out of the garage, and to the end if the driveway...then it didn't move any more...engine running fine, but no response from trans. Finally figured out it was low on trans fluid, so I added a quart and that seemed to help, made it a few blocks, then the same thing - no trans response. So I parked it and my boss drove me back for another qt of fluid. That gave me enough to get home, but still slipping majorly. I'll check level tomorrow and get more fluid. I'm using type F so the wrong type isn't the issue, it's gotta be the level.

Anyway, here is how she is sitting with the new leaf springs. Click image for larger version

Yeah I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it is. I could have sworn the dipstick showed okay, but the fact that it did better with more fluid indicates not so much. I will know tomorrow for sure.

Are you checking it on a level ground? And in neutral? Is the torque converter full? That thing can hold like 3-7 quarts

Yeah I didn't drain the converter. Everything says to check in park idling, so that's what I did. I got about 1.5 qts when I pulled the pan, but it was leaking everywhere already, and 5 qts went back in. From what I'm reading about the FMX, I still might be a few shy.

Now that things have settled down overnight I'll take a cold reading, then an idling reading, and go from there.

I also read that if the filter comes unseated it can cause the same thing. I might cut my losses and drop the pan to double check the filter is secure.

Okay, dropped the pan, and sure enough the filter wasn't seated. Looks like I connected the wire holder incorrectly...face-->palm.

So, now it's seated correctly, got the pan back on - luckily I had an extra gasket sitting around - and bolts torqued properly. Tomorrow we fill, and with a little luck everything should work perfectly...right???

Finally got my Barton shifter bracket installed today. I was going to do it myself but ended up bringing the car to my mechanic who put it up on the lift and got it done in less than 30 minutes. Thanks Junior!
