Default What can this be???

Ok I've been having ALOT of problems with my bonny and it'* been really making me want to get rid of it. But anyways, I'll first tell you what got fixed on it so you know what has been fixed and then you can tell me what is up with it. I got a new overdrive, new switch in the tranny. But I'll be driving and all of a sudden it'll kick into neutral while I'm in drive and just make my RPM'* go up then BANG into gear! What can this be??

I take it back there and it seems like everytime I do he'* jerking me and just fixing alot of things just for money even if they dont need to be fixed. Cause he told me before the problem was the switch. He did that now it'* still doing it.

It didn't do it before you had it "fixed", right? Then you need to be persistent with him until it is fixed correctly. Perhaps he'* not taking you seriously...

Wait a minute... when you take it back for him to fix his "fix" job, he'* charging you money to fix other things? If so, you're being walked on.

I would take it to him and simply say (nicely of course), that the car never did this until after he did work on it, and he needs to correct it free of charge. If you think he will just give you a line of bull, then take someone with you that won't take any bull.
