The reverse could be a bad or sticky solenoid?
How does your tranny fluid level and condition look?

I feel your pain... I wanted to get another Bonny back in Jan, but I had no luck. Something told me mine would start to be a money pit and voila!! I need about $1500 in work not covered by my warranty. (Tires, alignment, etc) Hang in there - Rachel is right. There are GREAT people here on BC and if you put the information and viable wuestions out there, someone will get you the help you need!

About the tranny... have you had a real flush job on it? Mileage is right for it to have stared to glaze over parts inside.
