Going dry can caused huge problems for a transmission. That guy needs to rebuild the rest of it anyway. I got a new diff in mine for half that price.

Man, this mechanic sounds like a big %##^^%$$. He blamed it on you before you even brought it in. I'd get an attorney, but I agree if he rebuilds this again, I'd bet it won't be done right this time either. And I'm assuming your warranty is only good at that guy'* shop. I'd see about getting an SRTA too (thank God I have one) but you shouldn't have to pay a dime though since it wasn't your fault. Maybe you can get the money back from what you paid on the tranny and take that money to somone who knows what they are doing. I wouldn't trust this guy even if you didn't have to pay anything , IMO.

don't even threaten with a attorney. this probably isn't the first time this has happened for him, so im sure he'* used to "threats", just serve him the court papers. then let him come to you. also, file a complaint with the BBB

of course no transmission is MEANT to fail. he "rebuilt" the transmission on a performance sedan, that came stock with a supercharger, bet if you beat the crap out of the car from day 1 back in 94 the transmission wouldn't go out that fast. no way he can prove you were abusing it, he'* just hoping you'll just go somewhere else, take him to court

Quick question from the start of this...Clear power steering fluid? Never heard of such a thing! I am not saying impossible, but I know that any car i have ever owned has come with red fluid...is this something new?

Mikey is RIGHT on it! Will probably cost you 125 for the attorney (to start things rolling- min 1 hour charge) then contact BBB (probably do first) They will contact him fairly quick-.... he'll know you mean business. Another branch you can get involved is the Attorney State Generals Office (BBB & ASG Office are both FREE). Go at him with all guns, he should honor it with alot of heat, but it will cost you the consultation with the AAL. Best of Luck to ya.
