A guy just can't get a break / P1870
Did I **** off the Bonneville gods?
I just finished my UIM/LIM on the SSE with great success. I was thinking, "o.k." maybe I'll have a spate of good luck". Nope.
Drove it the other day and WHAM trans shook hard going into reverse. Brain says - "not good sign". Wifey drives it the other day and phones "honey, it threw a check engine code". Could I be so lucky that it was a sensor?
P1870. Having owned enough Pontiac'* I'm pretty sure this means new tranny time. Oh, yeah. This would be the third transmission in it since the oem blew about 5,000 miles ago. Didn't have the money for a re-man and went the used route. Bad idea. First replacement blew within the 30 day warranty period so they put this one in. Four months later - P1870.
So I am pretty sure I am up for a new tranny - this time a re-man, unless someone knows something about the TCC and this code that might prevent having to have an entire re-maned tranny put in?
Any other options besides a new tranny?
Thanks in advance.
