    The fact that its computer controlled descendants in the AODE and 4R70W are known for their reliability despite being very similar internally I think is proof of that. The transmission its self...

    You could lower the passenger side hood bump stop to bring the hood down some, it would make it sit slightly low compared to the fender but it would hide the gap from the bent hood some.

    I do this after changing the oil.

    My cars don't sit except in their off-season (the '98 does not see salt so is parked from November-April usually), and I start them every couple weeks just to...
