Extensive transmission damage can occur in some of the automatic transmission models when the transmission oil cooler fails and allows coolant to mix with the automatic transmission fluid.

    repair proposal exceeds the value of the car, until 3 days ago this extremely low mileage car ran beautifully, now it costs more to fix than what a trade is worth.

    I had several problems
    With thi vehicle. The water pump
    Was replaced 3 times due to coolant leak and now my transmission slips. I may need to have it rebuilt or replaced.
