: 01 Catera Transmission

It looks like I'm going to need a new tranny for my 01 Catera. No one around central Ohio even wants to attempt to work on it. Just put another in. Anybody have a tranny for sell? Anybody know someone around Columbus or Dayton they could recommend? It's slipping and occasionally blowing oil.

The transmission in the Catera is a GM built transmission that BMW bought and has used in the 5-series for a number of years. I think other manufacturers have used it as well. These trannies have an excellent reputation so I'm sorry to hear yours is failing. It may not be as bad as you think.

I would check around with different "European" auto places and explain to them that it is the same transmission that is used in the 5-series.

Here is a link where you can type in your car & search for parts at better $
than a dealer.

Best of luck!
