Did you notice that it wasn't shifting properly from first to second?

Yes I did... Also while driving, it will not go past 20 mph


I'm sorry, but, your transmission is probably shot.


It's a 1994 car, you've probably got a lot of miles on this car? I would say that you probably gotten your money's worth.
