Here we go....
So, I just dropped $1147.56 on my repairs today, full brake servicing, new back brakes the whole magilla, 180T stat, coolant temp sensor, inner tie rod, balancing, rotation, spring maintenance package.
After all that is said and done, I start the car, let it warm up...the coolant temp gage WORKS...what a concept
I let it idle....after 15 seconds, I here a loud high pitch vibration coming from the engine. Called the guy out....it sounded like it was coming from the transmission vac line adaject to the tb down to the tranny housing. I could here a hissing noise coming from the trans vac line. I figured this out based on my Chiltons manual and its vac diagrams.
Now, I'm having terribly hard shifting problems. Let me assume that 1 and 1 equals 2 here. Since the vac line is broken, is that causing my hard shifts...in particular from Park to Reverse or Drive?
Oh and to add to the insult....my tonight I went to get some cleaning products....started the car and the coolant gage pegs and doesn't move...apparently it read 140 degrees Celsuis and won't budge until I turn the car off. WTF is with that????!!! at least the 180 T stat works.
I'm a so unbelievably pissed right now...oh one more thing..is the car safe to drive until Monday morning?
I need some feedback here...don't let me down
