Talking New Tranny?!?

I took my car in to the dealership to have them do something for my transmission. It sometimes blocked me out of first and so I had to put it in another gear to get it to release. Also When shifting from first to second my transmission would hesitate and almost not engage. And then reverse sometimes was not there and I would grind reverse and have to pull it out and wait for it to re adjust it self. I got a call back the next day, the guy told me they were just going to order a new tranny from michigan for me. I would have thought they would have given it more of a fight before just giving in but it has happened before when they just reflashed my transmission. That only cured it for a month or so. Glad to be getting a new tranny but sad to have my car out for a week and a half while it gets here.

Well I got the car back from the dealership finally. It took them a week and a half. I asked the guy what was actually ewrong with the tranny and all he said was that It was coming apart. I have no Idea what that is supposed to mean. But if feels a lot smoother now.

yeah usually if its going to cost more to tear the trans apart and repair it then it will to get a new one, they'll just send a new one out. and from what you're describing, it would have cost a lot more

This happened the first day i got my car at the dealership. That day i was driving home stopped at my dads office and when i went to go back home i couldnt get into 1st 5th or reverse. I actually had to put it in neutral roll it backwards and go home with second third and was afraid to even try 4th. Went back to the dealership the next day and they told me my clips were broken. Got them replaced and havent had a problem since.

No supposedly the clips are supposed to let the shifter in and out of their spots, but when they break or malfunction it wont let the shifter into that gear and hold there.
