    good job guy. thats why you don't buy shit from people you don't know. cough up the extra couple hundred bucks and buy a tranny from hmotorsonline or a reputable shop.

    you should never have the words "ripped off" and "again" next to each other.

    Before taking the seller to court, have your car checked out by 2 or 3 CERT. mechanics who can write you up a repair invoice...

    Awesome company.

    guy wont call me, he just txt me after....didnt even want to speak to me. Taking him to small claims as soon as i get the cash.

    will try that, 500 miles isnt too bad because I do a shit load of highway miles.

    $425 :confused:

    THEN catapult the tranny while its on fire at him afterwards. with good aim, you should hit him. if not. it'll be fun either way and you still win.

    i've been in your shoes before. i know it's not cheap. but $700 is cheaper than $425+ whatever a good tranny will cost.

    sounds like a good time to learn how to rebuild a tranny.

    small claims will get you nothing at all. absolutely nothing. he just wont pay it. call judge judy. you get an appearance fee by being on the show.

    Seriously. Trannies can be a pain in the ass, but you'll get it fixed, and learn something, and probably save a ton of money without having to switch to Geico.

    Synchromesh FTW, I really thought there was no hope for my trans in my car. It grinded into third even at 1,500 RPMS, and the same story with 5th gear. Now it shifts perfectly smooth, even at 6k RPMS+.

    i've heard many many good things about gm syncromesh
    honda mtf is good trans fluid, but the syncromesh with friction modifier will make grinds go away

    because GM spent all their engineering money on fluids instead of transmission design so it has to be good.
