I know there have been many postings on torque binding and how to fix it. My question is a little different. I am looking for a used car and want to know everything that I can about discovering a tranny problem. I know about the shudder at slow speed turns. I also know about the yellow tranny power light. What else should I look for regarding torque binding and possible Duty C solenoid damage?

check tranny fluid, see if it's brown or smells burnt.

Do a couple figure 8's in a parking lot and see how it feels.
