I will try that next time it happens, thanks.
I went to my fav. mechanic today, and he told me the servo pack is a dealer
item. I will not be taking it to a dealer for service. Also said it would be about $400 labor to swap in a new trans, if I were to find a low miler and bring it in. But since it passed emissions today, I can renew
the tags and put it up for sale and look for a newer, non-PT replacement.
It is a great car, other than this problem. I had the timing belt/water pump/hoses/engine mounts replaced 18,774 miles ago, in Nov. 2014. Plenty of
upgrades since then, too.
You heard it here first. $1500 to forum members only 'til 8-23-19.
Thanks to all here, this is the best forum I was ever on.

Ehhh, if you're only giving forum members until August 23rd, I think anyone interested is screwed. It's already SEPTEMBER 10th.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.
