I'm pretty new to automatic transmissions, matter of fact the XT is the first auto I've ever owned. I'm going to pull a junkyard transmission for it this weekend. What kind of things should I check to see if I'm pulling a good/bad trans? And when I check this stuff out, what are the signs of a bad trans? I really don't want to do all that work for a dud.

try to find one from a wrecked car. that way you have a good indication it was usable when wreck occurred....

hopefully one that wasn't a full frontal hit :)

Obviously look at the odometer first. Then I like to check the fluids. Hopefully the yard you're going to doesn't bother draining the trannies. Check the diff oil for metal flakes, and make sure the ATF is still pink/red. Smell both to check for burning.
