Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
Tranny fluid was topped off when I last did oil change, which was appx. 800 miles ago. I haven't checked the dipstick (and now it's at the mechanic). Check engine light, transmission light -- no lights on.
Thank you. I always change the oil and fluids (although I'm gonna look more closely at the tranny, now that you've helped me). Also, I don't run the hardware(?) into the ground (i.e, the axle stuff, slamming on the brakes . . . ).
But Joe, is there a way to protect myself against a fals diagnosis? I mean, the car is in their hands now, literally. I can't put it in reverse. I do have a mechanic I TRUST, but he's in Savannah. Thanks.
This sensor thing, is it big bucks? If they can't do it themselves (it's a small, mom/pop looking operation, from what I see) . . . I don't have triple AAA just yet, but I've heard it's good stuff.
