    When I was a freshman in college I heard Martin Sheen was speaking on campus. And I thought to myself, "Martin Sheen? I love the Three Amigos."

    Turns out I was thinking of Martin Short.

    I have to imagine that for the amount of labor required to pull the trans and disassemble it far enough to get to the overdrive band, you're probably pretty close to the price of a full rebuild...

    As an aside, why does the engine get sluggish when too hot? Are metal parts expanding with heat and rubbing against each other?
