I brought it in to Transmission kings. He is COMPLETELY rebuilding the transmission. Lead mechanic said the tranny wasn't getting enough fluids and it was overheating the gears and there were about 7 codes that came up all tranny related. For that kind of work is 4200 worth it?

have it scan tested for codes

i had it scanned and code came back as a recalled coil for the starter. part is on its way. Second opinion was a gunther vw dealership which gave me a 7000 quote for a new transmission. I have a buddy who has a certified mechanic to install the tranny once i find one for about 2k. Any places or websites that have the automatic w8 transmission?
