Car is 2000 with a 3.8, 178K. I've not had any tranny issues up until now. Bought the car from my M&D who were the 2nd owners since it had 23K.

Symptoms; the fluid does not smell burnt, but the car jerks under moderate to hard acceleration, consistently once it warms up. If it is cold, it is not as likely to do it at all. From what info I can see online, it sound as if the 4th speed clutch hub splines have begun to strip (read about this on Triple Edge Performance.com's site).

Does all this seem reasonable/likely? Is there any way to tell for sure if the tranny is the cause of this?

I'd pull the dipstick and wipe it off on a white paper towel. see if there are any metal flakes in it

Great thought!

Just did it; doesn't appear good. I don't see any metal flakes like you might when a bearing has gone in an engine; you know, clear, distinct flakes. However, I can see what appears to be gray powder on the towel. Almost looks like tarnish wiping off a semi-precious metal. No distinct flakes at all.

I have done many tranny fluid and filter changes over the years. A lot of times there is that gray powder that you see around the magnet in the pan. I have always thought it was just wear n tear. Never had a tranny problem even with this stuff. Could be the start of something though. Best to talk to reputable tranny guy. You could do a filter and fluid change. Don't flush. Cool

The tranny is certainly going bad, just trying to find someone worth a damn to rebuild it locally. OKC, OK is my location. May end up dealing with Triple Edge Performance, if I can get him to return my calls. I did see a GM-rebuilt on ebay for a good price, shipping on top of that, and of course presumably no warranty...

Anyone else I should look into?

disconnect it and see if it still does it

cuz its happening to my car atm i asked my buddys they said it was the massairflow, low and behold car works runs like a champ after.
