Mark, are these temps/times true for both the 4R100 and the 5R110?

JD'sBigredv10 is starting off with a positive reputation.
New transmission was installed Wednesday afternoon and we hit the road within a couple hours. The final price was actually 10% less than the initial estimate. That was a small yet satisfying surprise. Made it home yesterday about 21 hours after we left Durango only taking a five hour nap in the Kingman, AZ Walmart parking lot. New tranny performed flawlessly but about 75 miles from home, the A/C started acting funny. When in the A/C Max position, air would periodically stop blowing through the dash vents and start blowing through the defrost vents. After playing around with the dials some, it eventually worked okay in the standard A/C position. What is going on?

Mild vacuum leak.

You have a mild vac leak some where most likely a line is broken or in plugged (going to say more like cracked) and it is allowing air in

did you get the SG? Autozone sells them as does camp world. I think AZ is a little cheaper.
