My 2007 Acadia Transmission failed at 48.5K miles last week. The shop asked for $3300 to replace a used one. The dealer asked for $5800 for an OEM one. I just felt being robbed. Never thought the transmission would die at this low mileage.
My car is lacking get up and go and when I am accelerating it can reach rpm of 3000 before it shifts into the next gear. I have read all about the transmission issues they are having with this year and model and I don't want to end up in an accident. I have searched for a list of ways I would know if it is going and can't find anything. I spoke with a mechanic in Denver about the issues and of course he says bring it in. My fear is he will see me with "I don't know wha to do" on my forehead and say it is going and bill me $4-$5k. Any help is appreciated...
Trying to check fluid as I have the whine described in earlier conversations. The manual says there should be a dipstick but there is not one there. Just wondering how much fluid should be in the reservoir.
Purge valve was replaced after breakdown at gas station. Vehicle had been flooding out after last 4 fill ups and finally would not crank at all. When it finally cranked after a couple of hours, running very rough. A vacuum hose was out of sorts (which was put back in tact) along with new purge valve. Since then it has been idling very rough.
When tank is filled with gas engine will not crank right away. Vehicle temporarily floods out.

after picking up the car from the tire store, i noticed that the car felt like it was more bumpy when driving down the road. I took it back to the tire store and they are telling me it is the Internal Travel Stop wearing out and the only way to fix this problem is to put on a new front end suspension. Does anyone have any experience with this problem or fix?
I'd like to change my own air filter. I hear that it is difficult to get to. any advice?
Long cut in the front bumper and the right rear is duck taped now. Now much to replace both. Color black.
I have had it in the shop when it isnt working and they have said that it was the blower motor getting ready to go out. However, When I brought it in it was working and they said that they could not find anything wrong with it. Could it be something other than the blower motor? A short in the wiring some where? When it does work the fan speeds all are normal. It seems to not work when its cold out, and as it warms it up outside, or maybe hit a bump, turn a corner, etc.. It will come on instantly...
