I didnt shift with the car off I turned it back on and then double shift into first gear. The peddle felt find just the gears not wanting to work. I thnk im just going to get a new car id rather pay off a loan on a car that will last awhile rather than n a car that could brake down in a week. Especially since there isnt a mechanic I feel I can trust anymore. It is so frustrating.

My car is at a shop right now until I decide what I am going to do. As of right now I have no money to even repair it.

Sorry to hear about that. Maybe you can try asking around to see how much the car is worth now before you decide what to do.

It is so sad how dis honest people can be. The mechanc probably took a sledge hammer to my tranny for all I know. And now I have to get rid of my car I cant afford to fixand try to buy a new car I cant afford, well I hope karma comes back to him. Im going to look at cars tomorrow and see if there is any way to get a trade in. What really sucks is I just paid $400 for new tires a month ago. Life just keeps getting better and better. Thank you so much for your advise and help I appreciate it.

Just to add, the first guy installed a used trans, not a rebuilt as you indicated. There is no warranties on these units and you have no clue of the history or mileage. It is not his fault it failed but I can tell you he way overcharged you for a used unit.

Well the transmission specialist I took my car to said he would never buy a used transmission withut knowing how many miles are on it and I would have been better off with a rebuilt transmssion. It is his fault and he has ruined my life.

And if he had told me any of that why would I pay $2500 for it?
