Eletronic pressure,means your trainsmission pump is probably bad,meaning may need to rebiuld or replace it.


rebuild the transmission or the pump? Is that a big job?


Yes if you are not familar with it,take it to a pro.


You may find a trainssmission cheaper than fixing your,s.


So it does need a transmission ?? Which is a big job I assume. Guess my husband will be looking forward to that someday (soon hopefully). Thanks for your help
