Wow that might be something gone haywire inside the tranny. For a better idea how them trannys work I have a sweet little guide right ova here:
Bottom of page has direct drive manual with pix

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
