    Thanks! Sure feels good to be driving it instead of working on it.

    Ok all you transmission gurus. I've got a weird problem going on. The trans is a 700R4 with a Hughes converter and a constant pressure valve body. It shifts great but what's going on is after about 20 minutes of driving I start getting a chirp-chirp that sounds just like a belt noise. Pretty soon it turns into a squealing noise at idle (just like a belt) and then to constant squeal throughout the RPM range. I thought the serpentine belt tensioner spring was getting weak until I pulled the belt off while the engine was hot, started it with no belt, and realized the noise is coming from down by the torque converter. Shut the car off and let it cool down and the noise goes away until everything heats up again. Anyone ever had a transmission do this??

    Could you have a front pump bushing issue? I've seen it happen on TH350s and TH400s. The bushing will stick to the converter and cause the noises you're describing. Sometimes they don't make any noise and it gets hot and takes out the seal and then you find it.

    I was afraid of that; sounds like the trans needs to come back out. Guess I know one project I'll be doing over the winter.

    I think Ryan nailed it. The convertor journal "grows" with the temperature and is losing it's clearance with the bushing.

    If the pump cover is cast iron, you may be ok, If it's aluminum, the bushing will probably gall the I.D. and warp the cover. You've probably stopped using the car for the season.. if not, I would, until you can verify the problem

    I can't swear I heard exactly the noise you describe, but I have heard a high pitched squeal from a tranny, it had just been rebuilt and the convertor journal od was larger than an original and removed to much clearance in the bushing. It was a th 350 with a hughes convertor.

    Makes perfect sense. She's in dry dock for the winter so I'll pull it and verify.
