For the Enterprise.
My car is sitting in a transmission shop
actutally its on a lift trans a workbench getting a rebuild ( There wasn't time for me to get a shift kit Etc so don't ask) just a basic rebuild with clutches and a new torque converter.
This all started out with a simple solenoid change. My father has a trans guy he'* known for years. So we take the car to him to have a TCC issue resolved. ( http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=61026
). He says its a bad solenoid and he will fix it for $300. Ok I mention that the for the riviera you most drop the whole subframe to get to get the tranny out so he can work on it . He says he doesn't have to he will just lower the subframe a little and change the solenoids through the fenderwell. Ok I am not a trans rebuilder so maybe he can. Well One week goes by and I call him to ask if the cars ready. He wants to talk to my dad ( who is standing right next to me ) so I pass it to him. After they speak it seems I need a NEW Torque converter price is now $500 and the car will be ready saturday (it is thursday in the story) . So saturday rolls in I head to the Transmission shop to pick up my car and get the final price. Well guess whats the first thing the tranny guys says to me (translated from spanish )" This is a pain in the ***, I had to drop the whole subframe and remove the transmisson just to look at it. Is it done I ask. (tranny guy) Haven't touched the trans yet.
. WHY YOU.......... My father steps in and tells him to take his time. After giving my father the look of death. I took a deep breathe told him to just do the whole thing and left.
trans needs new torque converter
car is still down.
******* Transmission guy that doesn't give a ****.
