mad Good News and bad news on my Car

Well.. I brought my 95 LX into the Transmission shop and the guy took it for a drive.

We came back and he said it is not my transmission that was causing the car to slip. He said the car is misfiring, which is causing the slipping.

So... could be anything...... so the good news is the transmission is fine. the BAD news is that the engine is not.
I will keep you updated on my struggle.

frown A tach would have helped!

Too bad you don't have a tach in your car (or do you??) because that would have told you right away that you're missing, even if you don't feel it or hear it (my truck runs great on 7 cylinders, no backfire, nothing, you have to notice the tach needle flutter ever so slightly to know something's up again).
However my '85 GM takes a bloody hairy fit when it's not getting 99.99% of it's power. The tach needle bounces significantly indicating a missing cylinder. Then you do the usual go-around-check and you know's what going on!
