Oh Crap…

One thing you never want to hear are the words “transmission trouble.” The next thing you don’t want to hear is “needs to be rebuilt.”

I guess I’ll be off drinking myself into oblivion now… Upcoming posts may contain an unusual number of spelling errors 😉

*Sigh!*

Hm… Yeah, you’re not going to beat about $1,800 for a standard rebuild, at any shop you’d WANT to go to.

I take it you didn’t spring for the aftermarket warranty, then?

I get the ‘if I thought I’d need’ sentiment – but I don’t trust my own luck – sprung for the warranty on MuscleMommy’s Expedition….and rebuilt the transmission about 8 months later – Hmm… which I guess means that I DID trust my luck…. Well, if they’re not returning your calls now – There’s always the local news stations… They… Read more »

You can have my transmission, Misha. I can’t afford plates and insurance anyway.

Oh and as for you misspelling, here’s an ‘M‘ for the above post.

Rest assured, I’ll be drinking with ya!

Well, if they’re not returning your calls now – There’s always the local news stations… They do love going after “Greedy Rich Guys” – like those who own ‘big dealerships with supposed reputations’.

Not knowing the Texas used car market I can’t give you much advice. Here in Pennsylvania it is usually a better bet (and cheaper) to buy a used tranny, have it serviced and installed. Here the road salt rots the body away, and the potholes destroy the steering and such before most folk can kill a transmission. You have prayers… Read more »

Ouch! Did they offer to kiss you after they got done, or is there an extra charge for that?

The 4R70W isn’t -that- hard a rebuild, but for that price the boys are correct…find you a used transmission and get someone to install it.

Well, the AODE’s are great trans, if your a ninety year old, that don’t have +200HP on the other end of the long pedal.

I guess when things go bad, they are contagious.

Being ugly helps sometimes, apparently. At least we’ll see about that. Indeed it does, Sire…., indeed it does. And with your talent they would have bought into a public relations nightmare.

And, bottom line, G-d never throws anything at us that we can’t survive.

I am personally a fan of the Dodge Charger police car mainly because it looks mean and aggressive.

You can say that again, but they’re like living in a Japanese efficiency apartment after going from the roomy interior of a Vic.
