Hi! I have a 2000 Eclipse GT 3.0 with the sportronic transmission, shortly after buying the car, the trans started slipping, harsh engagement, in and out of gear. finally went into Limp home mode, DTC codes P0750 and P0755 (Shift solenoids A&B malfunction) then it started making grinding/whining noises. bought a used 60K mile transaxle, swapped it out, changed the filter (had to split the case) changed the fluid and went to test drive the car- didn't get two blocks before the car jerked and went into limp home mode. took the car to the dealer, they said one of the speed sensors wasn't being read buy the PCM, possibly a broken wire/sensor. I'll have to see what sensor they were talking about. I know there are three- Input speed sensor, output speed sensor and VSS sensor. I believe the VSS sensor is fine, otherwise my speedo wouldn't work. as for the other two, I'm not sure how to check them, I am looking into getting a factory service manual right now. let me know if you can help me out here, I'm going crazy with this car........ Thanks! Ben Smith
