Well couple weeks ago my tranny packed it in with barely more than 2000km's on it since the rebuild a couple of years ago.
I called the shop (AJ Trans) up that did the work explained my situation (why the little use) and it was a cash deal so no reciept and the counter guy that did the deal wasnt there anymore but they still helped me out.(they gave me a good deal the first time too)
400 bucks later I got a new rebuild thats workin much better than the old rebuild.
The torque converter chewed itself up and packed the tranny with aluminium hence the need for the rebuild again.
1.5 years outta warranty and all they charged me for was parts and ate the labour :party0010:

If it fell off the tow truck would not the towing company be liable for any damages incured during said towing

just sayin'

Who towed it? Pleae please don't say Paul's or City wide depending on what name he's running under now! Whoever it was should have a garage policy.

it was a friend who towed it the damages wont cost me any money (well maybe a diff yolk) just some time and his truck was far worst.
My tires were to big for his wheel lift and I knew the risks

Wheel Lift!?!? Should have slung it, more time, but it wouldn't have dropped.

no sling wheel lift only

but the tranny shop gets better I took it in today for a bad leak and to have the kick down adjusted
all done with just a drop by visit and the leak was a warped pan they put a new pan on for free.
