Re: How bad is my transmission

Why do you think its your transmission? Your engine would have been affected by overheating, and your gas milage is totally dependant on your engine too.

I think you've got a problem with your engine.

Re: How bad is my transmission

Auto transmissions tend to fail prematurely. You're best bet is 5-speed swap

Re: How bad is my transmission

With an engine that has been overheated it is very possible to lose performance from it.
You may have a compression leak due to the overheating, in which case the car would feel slower as lower compression would casue loss of power. Warped head and damaged head gasket are other possibilities to consider. Overheating can also crack the cylinder head in extreme situations.
Get a compression check done on your motor and go from there.
