Car Towed Away
 
[bigcry]Well today i was driving home and my tranny started to shake. Shortly after the tranny warning light started flashing and than went solid. I slowly drove off of the bridge i was on and pulled over shut it off and hoped it was just minor. I went to start it about 5 min later and still the same everything. Called Road Side.

Tow truck asked if i could pull ahead a bit to be easier to hook up, so i started it up and put it in drive and no movement. GREAT!!

Now i have no car until Monday when the dealer is open. Any thoughts on if it could possibly be a minor problem. (i already had the flash a looong time ago and it was perfet)[bigcry]

Now monday morning they are telling me they do not have a loaner car avalible until the afternoon. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Thats ok, I enjoy not haveing a care and trying to get rides to work and back. (i am trying to get ahold of a manager but "they are outside and will call me back, its been about 25-30 min) this is dumb!!

Wow that bites! Glad I stopped my car ASAP when I got the warnings about it overheating!

Goodluck hopefully the dealer can get it sorted out for you

I guess i was frustrated that it was the check engine light not transmission light. But i heard that my engine had flooded and fouled the plugs. which appartly is not covered under warrenty. They did say they would cover it free of charge and i finally got a loaner car today. (2012 focus sel) Hopefully i can get my car back tuesday.
