Sorry but one more question...yes about my '01 GT auto.
I'm on the verge of buying a torque converter and I can get a transmission oil cooler with it (from an individual seller). Will the cooler do anything?
Also, one of the trans shops recommended I install a shift kit. Is there a shift kit for my car?
Thanks to everyone for your advice. Most everyone has been very supportive and I'm actually putting your advice into action!
