I recently bought my first 88 Bonneville. I love the car. I bought it from my mechanic who verbally warranted that the tranny had been rebuilt. A week after I drove away, I had problems with shifting (up, then down). Mechanic thought since it sat for (I guess) quite a while, that things were just sticking. Then 6 weeks after I bought it (last weekend) it started up again. Monday it would'nt shift out of 1st and the tranny shop said $1,800.00. They couldn't find anything external that was wrong.
1. Does anyone think my mechanic is partly liable to help fix it?
2. Since there have been a couple mechanical issues pop up since I bought it, can lemon law apply? (Alternator bearings went bad, gas leaked from underneath when I topped it off, there'* a clicking that comes from the LF wheel area, vibration at 60 from the RF wheel and it pulls in that direction)
If anyone has experience with the tranny sticking and was able to solve it somehow, any input would be welcome. Cash donations accepted too
