went to go get my transmission pulled today. brought it there at 7:30am and the guy said the would have to dissasemble it to figure out what is wrong and that he'd have it out by 1:00pm. he quoted me $395 to take the tranny out, dissasemble the tranny, and figure out the problem. so im like yeah! go for it. now, is it just me, or is that a pretty darn good deal. so, i went back at 12:00 and i see how thing were coming and noticed just the front frame part of the car on the ground. and the transmission sitting on a desk! Now, i thought the trans had to be taken out with the engine, but no!...im estatic about them not having to mess with the engine, causing other problems, and time. is this how all the shops take transmissions out?...I havnt read about how its done. I just thought it was either drop the whole front end, or pull the engine up top. hopefully the transmission is repairable. and , yes i tried almost everything, from solenoids to fuses, to bad ecm. taking it to the trans shop was my last resort...... I just want my cadi back. I'll let you know what ends up happening.
