Will a replacement transmission run for six weeks without having been reprogramed to the computer?
My transmission went out at 163,000. I took it to my mechanic and purchased a used transmission from LKQ with an extended warranty. I drove my car for six weeks. It drove beautifully. It had so much power. Than one day there was a dropping noise and the computer zeros out I lost power, and the transmission would no longer engage. Tried to reboot everything by disconnecting battery for 30 mins. Now the car will only start in neutral. I've spoken to another transmission shop and was told that there is an internal problem with transmission. Long story short LKQ blames mechanic, mechanic blames LKQ...LKQ will not honor there warranty they are saying mechanic should of had the car reprogrammed. Who right? Who is responsible for replacing this transmission?
