Between me you and the wall, its time for a new car...sell that and get something with lower miles on it. That car is going to start becoming a money pit...

Never have the transmission fluid flushed!! Especially on a high mileage vehicle. More often than not you open up a can of worms. I agree with joemom, it's not worth fixing. Time to move on. HTH. -Jim
