comment 1997 Olds 88, trans issue?
I've checked all of these; however, at present, I'm working with the belief that there is air trapped inside the valve body. While it was nose-down in the ditch, I know it leaked over a quart of ATF, and when it sat level for a day, I believe the remaining space cavitated. The reverse and second gear valves happen to be right next to each other at the very top of the valve body. Do you (or anyone, really) happen to know of a possible way to bleed air out of there?

New information: The transmission only slips above 20mph in "Drive"; in "3", the car gets up to 40mph before slipping. Not sure this will be terribly useful, but hey, every little bit counts.
