    The best(cheapest) thing to do is buy a used transmission and replace it.If someone take it a part and diagnose the problem that will cost and you end up to buy a transmission anyway. Just skip that. Save time and money.

    Can you tell me what you think is the problem? Could it possibly be the electric sensor? We are trying to stear away from having to purchase a tranny. It works great in reverse! lol
