Good luck and report back- youll see that cap is really exposed under there. As i said, the dealer tech i bought my cap from said that 9 out of 10 times its the cap.

Its a really fast job to change out the cap...you may need a little flathead screwdriver to gently help get the old one of.

You've got a big ball of good karma coming your way, my friend. On the drive home, I had no problems slipping. Turning was not a problem. Your help is much appreciated. Even though that $3 part cost me over $200, I am happy because the problem is solved.


Naturally, I discovered a problem that was hidden by the last one. It stays in 2nd for about .5 seconds before getting into third.
