Going to the shop tomorrow...

Big day tomorrow for me. I'm taking the car to the shop. Transmission has basically been skipping 2nd gear for a couple months. Only thing I can reliably come up with is the 2nd shift solenoid. I know just bits and pieces about automatic transmissions. This is the first major repair this car has needed as far as I know.

Grace is my 94 Corolla DX 172k

There is no sig.

Good luck, sir.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

It's in the shop right now. No word on what's wrong yet. The guy seems like he knows what's up.

$360 for the repair. Just the solenoid and extra diagnostic. Monday morning it'll be ready. Waiting for the part to come in. I'm excited!!!

I got the car back. It feels awesome to drive now. I also scored an instrument cluster with tachometer at the local junk yard. I have the "new" cluster installed and it looks awesome.

There is no sig.
