Can the adjustment to solve the 2-3 shift flare be done in the car? My tranny shop rebuilt my tranny for free for me after 30 passes the clutches went out. Now it has the flare, I am thinking about starting to rebuild it myself but am going to let them make this adjustment.

Can the adjustment be done in car?
What can cause the clutches to go so fast?

Any help is appreciated.

what type of servo and is the oil return hole filled ? I only ask because if you are running a servo with the small lip seal removed and drain port plugged then sometimes you can have trapped air in the servo and it causes the intermediate servo to react sluggishly. Ive had squishy shifting 2-3 shifts that I had to drill the top of the servo cover and install a 1/16" npt pipe plug so I could fill the servo housing with fluid with a squirt bottle to displace the air. rock solid shifts after that . Just a thought and it really only applies to servos that are using stock servo bodies with plug drainback holes.
