850r transmission problem

497 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  devalmyth
I have a 1997 850r. Car not moving in any gear...sometimes. Mechanic says I need new transmission. He doesn't do transmissions. Have been reading posts about trying PNP switches and flushes first. Mechanic doesn't think either will help. Is there something different about the 1997 trans from, say, the '96, '95, '94? When is it obvious that only new trans will do the job?

That same thing happened to my car few months ago, it was the srping tensioner or the spring itself not functioning, worned out. Maybe that is the problem. Have the mechanic check that also.
