my transmission has blown.

i have an automatic with a blown transmission ? wtf lol

well actually it hasnt been determined yet, ford is keeping the car overnight to determine whether it ahs blown or its malfunctioning but the tech said that he couldnt believe i even made it to the dealer ship since it wont shift out of 1st.

so my questions are basically ;
will i catch shit for my intake since it has nothing to do with the tanny.
and has anyone else experienced this?
ive had the car since jan 1st 05 and it has 19xxx miles on it.


im stunned

Don't worry, the intake will NOT void the warranty, I know that for a fact.

ahhhh, yes same thing happened to my car. it would bounce off the rev limiter before it would shift, and then it would just drop into gear. they replaced my whole tranny, and i never heard a word about any of the mods that i had on at the time.

hmm if your lucky theyll know who the hell steeda is and know that its not just some crap and they wont care. If your not theyll make shit up like the intake added power that the transmission could not handle, i wouldnt be surprised really. But thats pretty sad that your tranny died that quickly, i hope things work out and i hope the dealership doesnt complain about the intake, but they might say like oh you modded your car so you must be racing, that i wouldnt be surprised of either.

Oh focuson03 i like your sig, im torn as well but between the mazdaspeed3 and the Saturn Sky Redline, both will be just as fast but i dont know if i want 5 door fwd practicallity, or screw more then one passanger, drop top rwd goodness. But both do come with a turbo and a nice lsd lol.

yah the intake has nothing to do with the tranny. I had lowering springs and other shit done like rims and a drop in k&n air filter, ripped off restrictor box, ford racing wires, and coil and I went through 4 not one but 4 trans in 27000 miles. Not only did those mods not matter, it was all covered under warranty, just the fact the trans suck as well as the mechanice at my dealership. The second 2 were their fault cause they didn't install them right. How stupid can you be...morons...thats why I got rid of it and bought a manual svt :) but you'll have no problems. If you do tell em their crazy. later
