Hello I found about you guys from www.vetsinenfield.com very nice site well done. keep the good work


I had the same problem. It is a transmission problem, but don't get all worked up like I did about potential repair costs. The transmission just needs to be flushed and the filter replaced. My cost was only $225. It now runs and shits better then it ever did. No more shaking when shifting, car runs solid. I am fortunate in that my mechanic recommended a honest transmission guy.
