Sounds like a 50 dollar tranny is a good idea. Repairing the old one will run you about 2k.

Have you had a scantool on it while driving?

Fire off a PM to jr's3800 and link him to this post. He'* done alot of investigation and book-work on ratio'* of your gen. Maybe even Jim W. Those 2 guys will know all your options and whether it'll mess with anything in the ECM if you change it.
