4. Are you sure
it is bad.

I ask this because of a car I was involved with (Was mine I gave it to my BIL).

I had the transmission replaced. (About $900) He had major problems with that transmission. I talked him into taking it to a local garage. There the mechanic replaced a cheap external part, did not charge him and never again any problem.

Suggestion..get more than two opinions.
