I have been having truck problems here lately. I had a problem with my truck not wanting to switch gears. The highest I could get was to 40 and I had to go to neutral and then back to drive to get it speed up. I took it to a shop that works on transmissions and the guy there told me I needed new Govenor sensors because my old ones went out and it would be 650.00. I paid it and thanked the Lord that was all that it was. I started hitting some stores and getting my truck up to 60. Giving it a good workout to see if it was fixed. It was shirting great. Then I was close to work and the Transmission Temp. light came on. I pulled in to my work place and parked it. The light went out the next day and I tried driving it again to see if it was going to happen again. It did and I pulled into my driveway and let it cool off. My mind was made up that I was going to take it back to the shop again. I decided I was going to drive it to my parents and leave it there overnight because they were alot closer to it then I was. I started driving and then I heard a roaring sound like something came loose. I got it back to the shop and the guy there told me I needed to get the Over Drive rebuilt. He was going to give me a discount and it was going to be 1,200.00 dollars. He said it was fine to drive as long as I left the Overdrive off. I got to discussing it with my parents and they said you might want to go buy a new car. If you get the transmission rebuilt there is no guarantee that it will last till it goes out again. My Dad said it could last six months then you have to have it rebuilt again. That I would be throwing money away that I could use in buying a new car. He said that was what he was hearing and that he was not really sure. One Mechanic told us that if we get it rebuilt then I should be good for awhile. That it will last. It was a guy I was getting a second opinion from. I am not sure if I believe him or not. I just would like to hear what others think and what their experiences are. Have any of yall have your transmissions rebuilt and last for a good while or is it throwing money away? I hardly know anyone outside of my parents and we keep to ourselves alot.
