BIG +1 here. The transmission is trashed, and the seller knows it. To sell the car, they put fault on some sensor that costs <$100. If that really was the issue, don't you think they would change the...

The shop performed the smoke test yesterday, and there were two very small leaks in the CCV hoses, but they said it would not be enough to trigger a misfire. It's the old style CCV, so I've now got...
