The dealership shop is saying it keeps getting trasnmission codes and that it needs a new one? It doesnt make sense to me.. If i could get any feed back that would be great thanks..

It starts right up in the cold morning.. But after i drive it and it sits a bit it will not turn over unless i put the gas to the floor than it fires right up.. I take it to the dealership shop and they say well we've had no problems starting it but it is getting transmission codes.. The transmission is $1600 and thats used at 83K.. I just dont want to do all that and have it still not starting.. I do not know what to do at all right now..

Doesn't sound transmission related, especially if your putting the gas pedal to the floor. I'd get a second opinion. Make an appointment at a local garage, preferably one that is recommended to you that is honest and have them take a look at it. It might be something easy to fix, or they might verify that you do in fact need a new trans. HTH's.
