A fluid leak may develop from the propeller shaft seal on the rear of the transmission. Our technicians tell us that replacing the seal will commonly correct this concern.

    Car feels like the transmission is slipping as we drive it. Holding gas pedal steady it feels like we are being pushed at random a little faster and tach meter fluctuates as well as speedometer.This car has had so many problems it smells like a lemon and looks like a money pit. Any suggestions? Drive it to junk yard? Or sell it for scrap metal?
