  1. New to forums

    NEW TO SMOKINVETTE Corvette Forum?
    Hiho- Northeastern newbie here. Not new to corvettes but haven't owned one in quite a while. As far as I can remember, have owned 8 or 9 of them in total. Mostly earlier - a few '69s (one was an orig L88 but had been altered), a '63 roadster, '66 coupe (both in awful shape when I got...
  2. C4 overdrive failure?

    C4 Corvette General Discussion
    I downshifted in my 89 corvette while I was driving down a hill, I probably drove for a mile or two in a lower gear before I realized that I had forgot to shift it back up. Now while driving at normal highway speeds the Roma stay very high and it sounds like I'm in a lower gear. Has anyone...
  3. Automatic Shifter

    C5 Tech & Performance
    Transmission problems again. Shifter moves freely and car won't change out of gear. 1999 coupe with automatic transmission. I put the car up on stands and the linkage is still attached to the transmission. I have taken the console out of the car and have removed the shifter boot. Are there...
  4. Transmission rebuild!

    C3 Tech & Performance
    Alright, so my shifter stopped moving and got stuck in park, so being an aggressive moron I forced it and now I can move the shifter willy nilly easily but every gear is forward, (reverse, park, neutral) everything! :479: So I ordered a B&M transkit for rebuilding it (PN 30229). Anyone got any...
  5. Help with 1995 Corvette

    C4 Corvette General Discussion
    Trans wont up-shift under full throttle until 6000rpm even when manually shifting. Can shift points be reprogrammed? Also interested in performance chip from autochipsdirect.com has anyone tried these chips or heard anything about them?

  10. 1978 Vette 4 Speed Conversion HELP

    C3 Tech & Performance
    I have a 1978 Corvette L-82, and I would much rather have a 4 speed tranny than the stock automatic. Im looking to upgrade horsepower later on too, and ive heard the Muncie 4 speed might not be able to handle much more than 250-300hp. What other 4 speed transmissions can be used for this car...
  11. Leak between 6 speed transmission and rear

    C5 Tech & Performance
    I have a slow leak between the transmission (6 speed) and the rear. I took it into the dealer and they are claiming that the entire rear cradle needs to be removed from the car to fix the rear seal and want $1200 to fix the leak! 1. Is this a realistic quote? 2. Is this something I can do...
