Sal Patrillio (New York, New York) - Chevrolet Cavalier
A transmission question. When he starts the car in the morning, it won't go into gear until it warms up--worse when it's cold, sometimes takes 8-10 minutes. Mechanic says it's something 'minor' in the trasnsmission. Guys think tranny is cooked--clutches are gone, and it will get worse this Winter,. Can spend $1200 on transmission rebuild, or use a remote starter to warm car up so it'll work by the time he's ready to go.
