Guys, my trans is shot

I only have 1st and 3rd or 4th I don't know.. but there is no reverse nor 2nd.. (there was no slipping in any clutch before).. it has a hard shiftting and i need to let off gas at high RPM like 2500

I am hearing a funky metal chewing or zinging sound like ( wing, wing, wing ) kind of something is rotating alone even if the car is in parking position !

There is no burning trace in the oil ..

So, after so much reading here and there I am almost confident that the sun shell is broken..

how is the way of replacing it and can i do it without an overhaul.

no money at the moment !

thanks

I would agree that it's the sunshell. You *could* do the sunshell yourself, but it's likely that there are other things that are nearly broken inside as well. How many miles on the car?

Well the car has 188K but i dont know if the trans was rebuilt before or not.

I have just ordered the beast sunshell from transmissionpartsusa.com
