What if FWD fuse fixes torque bind

otherwise start sourcing a new extension housing (used possibly) or clutch pack.

But first I'd change the trans fluid.

Say the ATF was changed and it didn't go away. Then what?
describe "change"? was it just drained once, multiple times, or flushed?
draining the fluid once only gets about 33% of the fluid out.
if that doesn't work then the clutches are shot and there are grooves that likely need to be checked/filed down.

For me, 3 drain and fill sessions got rid of the torque bind.
But seeing as he's had the transmission rebuilt, likely it has 100% new fluid in it, and changing the fluid isn't going to fix the problem.

I've changed my ATF by draining the pan 3 times now. The torque bind is gone immediately after changing the fluid, and the ATF oil temp stops flashing, however, each time it comes back after 20-50 miles or so. The ATF fluid has gotten slightly more red each time, but still appears pretty black when its 4 quarts thick.
For someone who doesn't have much money, what are my options? I've never done more than change fluids on cars. I am open to trying to repair it myself if that's possible, but obviously I lack a lot of general knowledge. The FWD cures the torque bind, so I'm pretty sure it is my clutches that have gone bad. I have warped rotors, but don't really wanna pay for new ones until I get this figured out. Doing them first couldn't potentially solve the problem though could it?
Every ones help is extremely appreciated.

Do a search for Duty C solenoid. Parts will run you $100 or so, and shouldn't take more than a few hours to do, and the transmission does not need to come out of the car. I've never done it, but I've been reading on it the last few days.. Seems pretty easy.
