Car has 150k and recently started having an issue with the transmission not being able to go into 1st. Feels like it's stuck in neutral. So when I first start car up and fluid is cool it operates fine. When it gets warmed up it malfunctions making it un drivable. Shifts into all gears without issue when it works properly. Currently not drivng car because i dont want to become stranded. Fluid has been changed. Did a 4x change with valvoline max life. Doesn't seem to make a difference. Considering a used transmission but the ones I have seen are overpriced ($1600 range) for an economy car. Also, my local mechanic did a reset on the transmission ecu and that didn't make a difference either. Seems drivable for 10 minutes or so before it acts up.


I should also mention my shiftronic stopped working almost 2 years ago and not sure if this is related in any way? No way to manually upshift or downshift. Not looking to spend 2500 on a rebuild for a car with 150k on it.
