Fast forward to this morning. In addition to the cruise going out, I mentioned sometimes it stucks in 4th gear when accelerating onto the freeway with a loaded horse trailer (~ 20-30% of the time). I got the proverbial pat on the head of when a man is telling a young (short) blonde girl that she really doesn't know what she's talking about and it's shifting just fine. "Did I know that it revs up higher with a load?" Grrrrrrrr........
Noon and then 1pm and I haven't heard anything.....I call them. They call me back. The looked at my transmission and there's a bunch of "really weird" codes in there and because they can't find the problem with the cruise control they think it's related AND NOW they believe me that it's been shifting funny. And yes, there is a real problem with the transmission.
They would like to keep it for a couple of days to try and figure out what's wrong. They need to take the transmission apart.
They offer me a courtesy car.
I laugh hysterically.
I tell them my situation.
They talk to the tech.
They agree to put it back to together well enough I can drive to Ridgecrest for the 20 MT 100 and then I can take it back to them next week.
Soooo..........With this much trouble actually getting to the 100.....the actual race itself should go off without a hitch right?
