2000 SE with Engine Rev Questions. Need help quick Please

I have a 2000 SE and just had a shop check it out. Not very impressed with them either. I was thinking it was just a shift solenoid A or B. The first couple days he had my car thats what he was thinking. He had it a few more days and I started getting on his case about the time and he came back and said its the clutch box and needs a complete over haul.

I have several posts on here that say the shift solenoids fix the issues that shops are calling for new transmissions.

I need to decide to order the 2 solenoids for $90 or buy a new car. Any input would really help!

Thanks,

If you need the help so quick you should say what's wrong instead of vague mentioning of things like 'rev' and 'trans'. You could have fifty other things wrong there other than what you have already decided.

Better look again, many change solenoids and no result at all, they often decide those are the trouble with no evidence very similar to what you have done.
