WAS THE SPARE ON THE FRONT FOR 100 MILES?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

the donut tires are designed to be on the front, because it effects the gear ration, when ever you have a flat on the front, you are suppose to move one of the rear tires to that wheel and install the spare on the rear, I suspect you have damaged the transmission, if the transmission lite is blinking, it has a code stored in the transmission computer, you will have to have the trans computer scanned and see what code it is,Tim
