Hello all, I just got a 93 850 GLT (got a really good deal on it) and it has some tranny problems (which I knew of before I bought it). I really like this car so i'm willing to spend some money on it to make it right. The "issues" that the tranny is having is that it will do nothing when I put it in reverse. I can drive it foward all day long with no problems. I was told at the dealer that it could possably be something electronic on the transmission (he told me that there is a lot on that transmission that is electronically controlled by some computer). He also told me it would be $2,000 for a new tranny and about $1,000 for the labor. I kind of figured it would be that much anyways before I bought the car. What I would like to know is it possable that, after I changed the trans fluid, it would be ok? Or is the transmission fowled up beyond all belief? I am very new to this site (this is my first posting) so any of your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again!!
