Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I personally would be greatly suspicious of that mechanic.Losing " a lot of transmission fluid" is a serious thing and may have actually caused permanent damage to your transmission. As the mechanic has compromised their integrity, I would immediately take the vehicle to a different mechanic - preferably one who does not know the first and ask for a diagnostic on the code and an inspection of the previous person's work, with a written report of their findings. Di not tell the new mechanic of the happenings with the first - you want an unbiased opinion and not one formed to protect the incompetent or inept. If he asks about previous work done to the car, don't lie but do limit what you say ( i.e. say another shop, not Tom's Auto Repair in Cucamonga). It is possible these 2 instances are unrelated and your shop had an OOPS moment, but you do need to insure they didn't waste your transmission, costing you a small fortune and loss of time for the trans replacement. Protecting yourself is the primary goal here. Hope this helps!!
