    Columbus, OH area transmission places

    Hello-

    My 2000 WS6 with 52k miles (6 speed) is acting up and I think it is the transmission. I have no SES indicators and I have notice shuttering during cruising speeds (e.g. 45 mph) as well as missing during acceleration. In general I do not feel the car hooks up like it use to. Car is stock with the exception of Borla and a MTI lid.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for Columbus, OH area shops that can provide an honest assessment and provide reasonable parts and labor rates?

    Thanks!

    That doesn't sound like a tranny problem to me.

    well I'm a tech so I do all my own work. but what your describing sounds more like a engine performance problem.

    Does any one think it is a clutch issue? Again, I have no SES light. I put new plugs in last summer. I run Lucas injector cleaner in it a few times a year.

    Thanks!

    If this is a clutch problem it's a new one to me. Clutches usually either slip under power in high gear or chatter from a stop in first. They don't chatter in high gear at part throttle. Just because your car is missing doesn't mean it's gonna set a code, we have an evo in the shop right now that idles like it's got monster cams and no check engine light.

    I'm going to keep driving it and see what happens. I am planning a long trip with it in a few weeks so I am a bit nervous about it crapping out in the middle of nowhere!
    itseff, does your shop work on F-bods?

    Sounds like a misfire to me also.

    I would be willing to log the car and diagnose it for you but I live out in Lancaster so we'd have to figure out a good mutual time for both of us. I will have some free time coming not this up coming week but the week after. I could possible meet up with you then and log the car to see what's going on.

    Culprit found!

    Damn you guys are good. Of course it died (multiple times) on the way home from Mid-Ohio Saturday. A Crankshaft Position Sensor. Nobody had come up with that one. Battery, alternator, fuelpump, bad gas, injectors were often discussed, but never CPS.

    My poor baby!
