Customer Question
I have a 97 3000gt...
I have a 97 3000gt that has a shift selinoid problem I think because when you start it and put it in R it will back up fine then you can even take off in D but just a minute later it wont move in reverse or drive until you shut the engine off then wait a minute and you'll then again be able to do the same thing. What does this mean im not able to pay 2500.00 to have it rebuilt ?
