Re: clutch slipping...again

You might as well measure the clearance too. When depressed it should be about .050" . I had that bad one a while back that was .005" . I kinda figured out that the travel distance of the throw-out bearing was about .375" .

Re: Another radiator fan dilima

When car is idleing you should be able to pull the plug off and fan will run. If not some thing is wrong in the wireing or fan motor is bad . Bad fuse somewhere.
I installed the wrong sensor once and fan ran as soon as engine started . That switch worked the opposite of the correct switch.

Re: Inconsistent Transmission Oil Level

I would look into how much fluid stays in the torque coverter . Or find out how to empty it. Otherwise you may put too much in.
