Solved! Re: The Lucinda Lowdown
Thanks to those on the drivetrain forum, we changed our fuel filter and problem solved. On our way!
BTW, the ATF problem earlier was fixed by a radiator rebuild. Apparently the water, oil, and ATF are are cooled by the radiator, and ours wasn't working well enough for all three to be happy. It took forever for the shop to identify the problem, which meant free indoor winter storage for me! Now the new radiator has everything working at good operating temps even climbing passes in the 90 degree Nevada desert.
