If you just had it pulled, then no. I would not start the engine, 
however, until you put it back together. Russ is more familiar with 
the workings of the AT, though, and I'd defer to him if he disagrees.

It's the governor and the governor cover. While you've got it off

I doubt if grease would cause your problem. More likely it means 
that you had some grit between the parts that kept them from fully 
seating when you put them together. I've never had a problem here

use the OE serrated washers as well as the 2-hole washers, and 
use the torque wrench.
