1998 Rodeo LS 165,000 mile.
While traveling, my transmission started slipping, and had an obvious
leak. I had the fluid flushed and changed, and was told they changed a
tube that had a leak.
The trans. worked perfectly immediately after the service, but
overnight it leaked off a significant amount of fluid. At that point,
I drove it back to where the service was done the previous day, and
they refilled the fluid, and reattached/resealed the suspect tube.
Again, after this effort, everything worked great,smooth/no leaks,
with one exception...it wont go in reverse.
On day 2, before I took it back to be refilled, reverse worked, but it
would "slip" in both D and R. While driving the 2.2 miles to the
service center, the "check engine" light flashed in red.
Could this have triggered a switch, or ERROR code that is keeping an
otherwise functional transmission from performing properly? Do I have
any hope of restoring functionality without completely overhauling,
rebuilding, or replacing the transmission? Also, what is the ov/un on
$$$ according to the oddsmakers?
Thank you for you respnses
