I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS with 167,000 miles. My check engine light came on a few weeks ago, so I took it to a repair shop to do a diagnostic test. I was given a code P1811 from the mechanic and was told that I needed to take it to a transmission shop for further testing.I went to a few transmission shops and was told by both mechanics that the transmission was going bad and that it needed rebuilt and that it is going to cost me $1300 for the repairs to complete this.
This car is in good shape other than this issue, just wanted to know if I should have this repaired or just get rid of it?
