[06 CV LX] Transmission going bad?
What's up, folks?
So my recently purchased 2006 CV LX has about 240,000, has been pretty well maintained, and drove absolutely beautifully up until about a week ago.
One day I was driving and started to feel the car not shift properly. About 5 miles later, the transmission was simply not wanting to shift (yet I drove it about 5 miles to work and left it there).
That night, the car started fine, but the car wouldn't go forwards, backwards, you know the drill.
I looked underneath and saw a rusty gash on the transmission line bleeding out all of my trans fluid. I bought the appropriate size rubber hose and clamps, cut out the bad part and repaired the issue.
I threw 5 quarts of trans fluid in there and the car ran perfectly for about a day. Although my fix worked and not even a drop is has leaked, the trans is starting to go bad again. Every day it has gotten worse and worse.
I am pretty sure by tomorrow it will have trouble shifting again.
So my question is- could the entire trans have gone bad in a matter of six days? Did driving it in a near-empty condition for under ten miles damage it permanently?
Any expert advice, folks?
