I have not had this item fixed yet. The transmission guy said anywhere from $1100-1400. I did not expect to have to rebuild the transmission after 122,000 miles.

Sometimes (rarely) when i put my car in go and press the gas, it wont go as if it were in neutral. After about 5 seconds it will catch on. I got my trans. cleaned and oil changed, now it rarely do that. Before i brung it to a trans. place, every time you try to turn and give it gas it would slip.
