- Out of all of the transmission repair forums that I have been a member of, TRNW has the most traffic,
most experienced and knowledgeable members that I have ever seen. I usually get a response or an answer to my
problem in less than 15 minutes! The web site is full of ALOT of info and seems to keep getting more every week!
Being a shop owner/technician with no other highly experienced techs here, it is nice to have some other folks
out there to put minds together to come up with an answer to a problem. My member ship fee has paid for itself
in the first month.

- TRNW is an absolute must have if you work on today's transmissions.
Shortly after I joined TRNW, I had a problem with an e4od. I do more of this transmission
than any other so I'm very familiar with it, but it was KICKING my butt. After spending allmost
2 weeks trying to figure out what was wrong, I finally posted the problem on TRNW. Within just a
few hours, Gary Haslip from 1,400 miles away, told me to ck the tail light bulbs. If they were LED,
that was my problem. He was right. I figure the amount of money I lost on that job by not checking
with TRNW first, would have paid my dues for 7 years.
I'd give up my impact and build with a ratchet before I'd give up TRNW.

29 years builder and member...
- I currently am an automotive instructor and have been fixing transmissions since 1974. My membership in TRNW allows me to keep current in transmission technology and real world issues with diagnosis and repair. Without working in a shop on a daily basis, it allows me to share knowledge with my students that I would not have access to. All I could teach my students would be the history of transmission repair. Students can do things to a transmission during a repair that would take many hours for me to figure out, but with the fix data base and Tech help by the members, all the problems I have had were fixed in a timely and cost effective manner. TRNW allows you to network your brain power and experience with hundreds of other technicians. I consider TRNW a member of my advisory council, and use the input to help me make decisions on what equipment and tools to purchase as well as all the other technical help. I work in the summer fixing transmissions and whenever I open up a new unit that I have never worked on before the fix database and technical tips are my first reading before I ever turn a bolt. TRNW makes the learning curve on units I have never worked on short and sweet.
- THANKS to all that responded and helped me through this. What a great service to belong to.
- I fought one (ZF5HP24) for a week with a bind and would burn the B clutch in no time. I tried everything even a different case. It ended up being a TCM .
I was able to monitor the duty cycle of the solenoid that was energized to exhaust the b clutch oil. I found that the TCM was not able to fully open the solenoid.
I never fully understood why when you look at the oil schematic after second gear the B clutch is never fully exhausted as if the B clutch is Primed until it is applied in 4th .
I was monitoring EDS 3 , man I looked back on the post I think that car almost killed me. But it sure was a testimony to how great TRNW is.
- You mechanics know how great it is to have a buddy at a dealership or specialty shop to run a problem by for his ideas. How about a thousand plus transmission guys (& gals) worldwide you can ask for ideas and help from? There's an unlimited amount of information available out there. Members spend time helping to diagnose your problem, wether it be a trans acting up, employee relations, shop management, parts locating, or just jokes. Just ask a question and see the help you get on TRNW!

- Great Idea It's About time someone tried to get us working together.
- I've been in the transmission Industry for over 30 years. During this time, I have been a member of most every technical service known. In 1998, I joined what is now known as TRNW. Little did I know at that time that TRNW was to become my most valuable technical tool, as well as one of the best investments I've ever made. TRNW literally saved my life!
In 2006, I had to have an emergency liver transplant, and without the love and constant prayers from this fine group of individuals, I would'nt be here today. TRNW was invaluable to me during my recouperation because it kept me up to date with what was happening in our industry.I could'nt attend the regional technical seminars because of physical limitations, but TRNW was right at my fingertips, keeping me aware of the problems and fixes that were coming into our shops! I plan to reopen in 2008, and that would not be possible without the love and support of this great group of Technicians that make up TRNW.

- I'm semi retired, but wish to remain involved with this fine group of folks. I have appreciated the past & look forward to the future.

Pine Bluff, Arkansas
- I was a member of TRNi for almost ten years when a division of the founding partners stopped the exchange of information for about three weeks. That three weeks made me appreciate the support I was recieving from my fellow TRNi members on a daily basis. Not only the technical help but the support and comfort that comes from being with "family". I didn't realize how much it meant to be online with so many other folks facing the same problems I was facing day in and day out.
Many of the people that are most important to me are subscribed to TRNW. I decided to subscribe to TRNW after learning that all the archived information that was contriubuted by all those hard working members is available on the new TRNW site. The fix database has thousands of problems and solutions from members all over the world in a searchable database. Where else can you find so much information at your fingertips for less then $.30 a day?
As a shop owner I can't think of any other single resource that gives me cutting edge tech and management support that is available on TRNW twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. People that set the example in our industry. People that care about the industry.
If you had to choose only one online forum, the choice for me can only be TRNW. Transmission people helping transmission people worldwide.
