you are probably right about that....
I figure I will take the car in for a once over next week and start with the cheaper parts and move up if necessary. I am hopeful that the mechanic be able to identify the problem right away though... At least posting on this forum gave me SOME ideas. I wont look alike I've done my research when I take it into the shop. If its a expensive transmission problem I may not have a choice but to drive it like that for a while and just sell the car for parts later.

thanks guys
