We knew it had a trans problem before getting it, that codes pointed to just the solenoid pack and had run perfectly for 2k miles once on the road(m...

Re: Potential end of forums...

Actually on most all the Auto forums I use, membership rules keep things pretty well in line for risks of the hosting platforms. It's the open FB,Twitter and such accounts(sites) that really has the content posting problems to have the hosting platforms in trouble.

As a teenager, I had full time employ and pay from family owned VW specialty repair shop.
