Thanks for the replys. I've just gotten back from vacation. Latest news on the tranny. Parked the car for 7 days while I was gone. Returned home and had to travel out of town. Drove the car 225 miles without stopping or ever putting it in reverse. Next day, I tried reverse and it worked like new! Drove a couple of miles and it seemed like it was fine - always engaging properly. Today, back to square one! No reverse. I don't know squat about transmissions, but it would seem that if the clutch pack was gone, then it wouldn't start working normally again, and then quit again?? Any thoughts?
Also, the cruise control issue continues as well. It wouldn't work today until I turned the ignition off and restarted. Then it worked fine. Thoughts?
Thanks again for any replys.
