Damn man! Are you dropping it off to the same people? Looks like maybe they are not fixing the problem! Tell them to just throw in a MTX instead of an ATX?

seriously, you're just paying to prolong the problem. Have your car converted to manual transmission.

If may cost a little more than this rebuild at the shop, but it will prevent you from needing a 6th rebuild.


Also "race" and "3.0L ATX" should not mix. You're killing it yourself.

I would love to get a manual tranny, but you have to look at it from my point of view.

the atx.. yes it sucks, but it is under warranty.... Any time i break it, it gets fixed free. they had a different guy rebuild it this time and they called me yesterday saying it was the valve body.
