No more 3rd gear.
I was driving down the highway yesterday when the car dropped from 4th to 3rd, then back to 4th, then to 2nd. I pulled over as quickly as I could, but I guess it wasn't soon enough. I checked the fluid levels and it was completely empty. I ended up having it towed to a shop by my house.
They looked at it today and said that one of the hoses popped off the cooler and dumped the fluid. They replaced the line in question, but the damage was already done. No more 3rd gear.
I'm not quite sure what to do regarding a replacement. Money is tight (see also: damn near nonexistent), so I'm kind of in a rut. I don't know much about the tranny currently in the car - I know it was a rebuilt unit from Darrin and it had a Marauder TC from dirtyd0g, but beyond that I'm completely in the dark.
Any suggestions/ideas on the best course of action from here?
