I asked for a price on the transmission in case this throttle body replacement doesn't fix the problem because I am skeptical. That price is $5,252! My question is does it make any sense that a bad throttle body, which for a modern fuel injection engine may well have computerized parts and connections, etc, would have any impact on transmission function? I don't really want to spend $800 and not fix the problem, since replacing the tranny at $5252 would to me make no sense at all in a car worth only $10 with a working transmission. In other words, if the throttle body issue is not likely to fix the problem (they say it probably will fix it), I would rather take my chances on a trade in and get rid of the car. What do you think?
have the same problem?
