Question about 1996 Eagle Vision
I had the waterpump replaced along with the timing belt and all other belts. 2 days after it getting fixed by a mechanic, the transmission went out. I'm assuming it was the transmission-it started making a grinding noise when I'd put it in drive and won't go in reverse.
Could the mechanic have done anything to cause this?
I have never had any transmission problems. I had just had the transmission fluid drained and a new filter put on approx. a month before I replaced the waterpump.
I dont' think a mechanic had anythig to do with this. when a timing belt and a water pump is changed in this type of vehicle there is no interferrence with the transmission, it's only the front of the engine that is disassembled. I've heard that in some cases when a transmission flush is done as well as a fiter change, it can loosen up the dirt particles lodged within it as well as other contaminents and can cause failure. Please note that in some cases the transmission may only require a new relay ! Have it looked at for a second opinion before assuming the worst!
