    Since I bought the van there has been a slip in the transmission when I out it in reverse. Had the trans flushed last week and boy what a difference it made. No slip in reverse and smoother shifting in drive. RPMs seem quite a bit lower now too.

    Now to figure out this knock or rattle. I was told it may be the power steering pump or something like that.

    A lot of places only flush without filter replacement. A problem down the road.

    I'm using a local shop and we discussed the filter change but not type of fluid. I trust him to use what's right.

    That's what I was saying if you read the post. If you get water in there, spray with WD40 to displace the water before the blower gets stuck.

    I think that's what I said. Before the blower gets stuck, spray wd40 to displace the water. I spray wd40 at the end of the day, then let the blower run to burn it off.

    You're going to hurt yourself Bob, were talking about 2 different things. You're right about stuck blowers, I'm trying to say how not to get them stuck in the first place. Need some aspirin?
