Believe it or not, I still haven't gotten my car back. They ordered a rebuilt valve body from their supplier, but there's apparently two different versions, and they got the wrong one. So, as of yesterday, they were installing the correct one, and were going to thoroughly test it to make sure it was working correctly.

In retrospect, I wish I had gone with the used one, as this is exactly the can of worms I didn't want to open up.

Thanks for the continued concern.

Well, here's the latest installment of this seemingly, never-ending saga. The shop owner told me today that they had installed the rebuilt valve body and reverse was now engaging correctly.

However, the engine is flaring when it shifts, and they can't get the flaring out by adjusting the existing modulator, because it doesn't have the pin that MB added to later versions. So now they're waiting to get and install a new modulator.

Does anybody happen to know if this will correct a flaring problem?
