from what i've learned, either you need to replace the MLPS, which is simple; replace the 2-3 accumulator, which isn't too difficult; or you have a burned up clutch, which is very, very bad. i'm sure that someone will come along with something more specific fairly quickly.

look <a href="http://www.tccoa.com/articles/tranny/index.html">here</a>, under 'transmissions 101', then 'common problems'.

Sorry to Hijack the thread. But it sounds like the same thing on my tranny. What is the MLPS and where is its location. Also the 2-3 accumulator. Id rather spend a couple extra bucks right now then grabbing a tranny from the wrecker and swapping it out.

The MPLS is located on the drivers side of the trans. where your linkage attaches to. It is black and has a wire harness attached to it. Can't miss it. If you need a pic, let me know as I have a trans. sitting on my garage floor w/ the MPLS on it.
