I would try that but the trans. is already out of the car.

Well this is what I found when I pulled the trans. apart.The valve body had a lot of debris in it especially in and around the pressure relief valve.It looked like this caused the valve not to seal properly.And that burned out the intermediate and high gear clutches.That's all I could find wrong.I'm not sure where the debris came from except I didn't flush out the cooler or the converter,so I figure it must of came from one of those two places.I'm ready to put it back in the car now but not before I make sure everything is flushed out first.

The clutches burnt up first! then the debris stuck the valve in the open position
Frank
check the line pressure when you fire it up again , you need 150 psi @ 2000rpm min

You probably mean forward and direct clutches. C6 does not have intermediate clutches.

The transmission is working perfectly!I got put out in the final round.The car ran 6.73 to 6.76 in the 1/8 all week end,except the final round it slowed to a 6.80.I think the trans was getting hot by then.I'm going to put in a trans.cooler with a fan for next year.And a transmission temperature gauge.Thanks for the help.
