I have my car down at a place to get the transmission fixed. Basically the problem was that i had it in neutral and dropped it into drive accidentally while it was revving (honest mistake, i wouldnt do a rollback or anything like that to it). Now it wont find first gear, i have to select 1 and then 2 then D. Now its been like that for at least 6 months, and it slips into 2nd a bit now and it can thud/clunk on a change to 2.
Now my cars at a place, the tranny is out and appart in their work area already. They just rang up to quote me on what needs doing, and they said after my RAC discount it will be $885 which they are going to do the following:
change the sprag gear (hub?) which is turned inside out as a result of my doings, put in new gaskets, seals, bands, and recon the torque converter which they rekon has shite all through it or something like that.
Now they rekon the inside is a mess, crap everywhere...etc
Are they trying to rip me off, or is that honestly how much things like that cost to get fixed/replaced???
I need advice badly, cos they are waiting for my response to start the work and its bloody stressing the hell out of me with my old man ringing me up at work pi$$ing me off saying they are rip offs...etc! argh! driving me crazy :(
