Guys I'm about to be out of money.

The Sebring left the normal garage today and went straight to a transmission shop.

Nothing good will come from this.

We thought ours was bad but it was just the TCM.

Now our PCM is ****ed and is making the car die randomly.

If its trashed it'll probably cost just as much to have them put in a used 4-cyl and the 5 speed. The car would be better off that way.

DO NOT pay to get the tranny fixed, you will pay at least 800$ for ANYTHING they do that involves touching it.

ive learned from experience your WAY better off getting a low mileage tranny from the junk-yard for 250$

Thanks Pat.

I'll work on that tomorrow. Hopefully I'll find something on that note, but my dad already broke rule #1 when he told them to 'just fix it.'

I get it back tomorrow I guess.

The shop calls my house instead of me and my mom (who knows not cars) said they put in a new speed sensor and then changed the fluid and filters like I wanted.

I guess it makes sense that if the input or output sensors were messing up that it would act like it was. It was just acting sluggish sometimes and once in a while it would just chill at a stop sign instead of moving like I needed it to.

...Right?

Maybe, IDK, I wasn't there. I was just saying that if the car was still hot when you checked the oil you wont get much, if any, on the dipstick.

I'm not that worried about it, its just I thought oil doesn't just... evaporate. But its not like there are pools of oil under my car.

Well, if you didn't have any or as much as normal when you drained the pan, that means you are burning a lot of oil, which is a problem. If you didn't have any on the dipstick that's no big deal. Either you were just low or the oil was too hot to stick.
