    when you change the fluid, be sure and replace filter. I have had filters stop up on me, and make you think the transmission is bad.

    Also Galants had bad capacitors in the transmission computer, I have one like that it is a 1982 model Good luck, car-parts.com if you need a part...Hope you are able to solve from my info
