Bossman if your in park and it sounds like shit you have big problems. I have had trans problems before, but never sitting still in park. Good luck.

If you have a garage and some basic tools you can take it out and put it back in. All you need for the bell housing bolts is a couple of long extentions. Sounds like something ended up in the Torque converter.
I have looked and even getting a used trans out of a junk yard is 900 bucks here in FL so take it out and send it back to them and give it another shot. I have had extreamly bad luck with parts breaking that shouldn't break not just on the car but in everything I do and it sucks man, I know how you feel. I didn't get even a week out of the first trans and then they had me running around looking for problems that weren't there. I changed wire harnesses, computers, check PCM programming and all along it was the sun shell. I pulled that trans 3 times and told them to figure it out and the asses never opened it up they just put it in a test car and ran a manual controller on it and everytime it worked fine for them. In total I have spent 1600 on the trans, 300 on fluid and 2 filters, gaskets time, it's just unreal but thats were the quallity is in this country right now. It's probably nothing that preformabuilt did wrong but a bad part that was made in some third world country and this is the result. It sucks and I hate to see it for ya but 900 beter than a whole new 1700. did they say weather they would include a new converter in that price?

Havent found out about the converter yet.. but I hope that's included. I'd imagine it's toast as well.

the converter is the only thing that can really make a noise is park so if i were you ,when you do get it out take and hole it over a bucket and see what falls out im betting little pieces of converter fins. and if thats the case then all that metal is stuck in your clutches ,seals ,and just waiting to grind the hell out of the planetary gears ohhh the destruction it can cause ,i hope your not in that kinda shape good luck

I took it into the shop n they said reverse went out while it was there.. so they went ahead and pulled it.. I'm sending it back to performabuilt.. they told me the converter isnt included in the restore..

The Converter is not included in the 950 however is cheap when done with the trans relativley anyway at 150 . The root of the issue was probably the presure control solenoid which resulted in clutch failure. This can happen really quickly when driving really only a matter of a few miles can do considerable damage.FREE COOLER/SHIPING, NO CORE OR CHARGE,2YR WARRANTY, CUST TRACK VIDEOS click banner 4 website, CALL or text 570-578-5686 7 days a week 9 am till 10 pm.

So can I just send the converter with it and have it done also?? sounds better than having everything reinstalled just to find the converter is bad also..

Its alright, they replaced it for like half price but still, ive got about $3500 wrapped up in a transmission now. One thats advertised to handle 700+ horsepower and my camaro might have 350..
