    Ok here is my issue i rebuilt my motor 300 mile ago and forgot to put the bushing in the crank for the torque converter, I put 300 mile on with out it , did i mess the transmission up or is it safe to just put it in. Ive been having issues with the transmission going in gear when it is cold but drives fine once warmed up any help or opinions ? :confused:

    your best bet is to pull in all apart again and see if theres any damage. There is a good chance you did damage something but you may have gotten lucky

    Personally, I never saw anything odd happening from not running that bushing in my cars.

    The transmission going into gear is literally not going into gear, it's just a valve that gets pushed through the valve body, and there's the gears that are operated by solenoids. That bushing won't affect the shifter feel in the car. I'd get that trans out and get that bushing in the crank ASAP. It's a good way to ruin the oil pump in the trans quick!

    I know what you mean. I'm white, and was driving through the city, and got a ticket for running a red light because I did was every single driver does when they turn left and went past the line to wait and wait til the light was yellow to turn. You just gotta tell them to f*ck off if they bother you. Tell them if they want to control the streets or call them their own then they should pave them once in a while.
