if you want to keep the car for a long time, rebuild it. if you don't then just get another from a junk yard.

I went to a San Diego, Ca junkyard two hours away from Calexico, CA bought it replaced it and working fine after almost two months, I might decide to start looking for another one since it is the second transmission in around 4 years plus the original one to fix it I asked on both sides of the border USA and Mexico and wanted between 300 and 1200 way too much the 1000 I paid 6-7 years ago.

It was working on reverse but any gear forward, so finding an used one at a bargain price $65 plus expenses for labor, oil, gas was an awesome deal.
