They say my transmission is not one that seizes but it is locking up and bucking for some reason. I have to disengage, then speed up to get it to stop bucking. Any ideas? this has occurred since I bought it used w/limited warranty. I can't afford $65. Everytime I need an estimate (down time) and this might be related to the recall. How can they tell which ones (not just VIN) regarding special torque tool.. also, what is the life expectancy from manufacturer on the rear oxygen sensors? I had a cracked cylinder head two months after purchasing. They say it was a defect in the water-cooling system. It sucked all my coolant thru engine, blew out back. My sensor in rear was result...they say it couldn't have gotten past cat. Convertor, although blue was blowing out my tailpipe... they won't fix. I am just curious as to how I can keep from them blowing smoke up my skirt. Thanks, I'm single, female and they saw me coming.
