    still worth noting if you have to swap the flanges, which you shouldn't but figured I would mention it.

    I'll keep an eye on that. Though ZF said it should be straight fit, just TCU with mecha i should swap from GUR. Mechanically it's the same gearbox though. Atleast that's what i understood from ZF. Thanks for input blitz
    If anyone has GUR gearbox, would save me a ton of nerve cells though

    If you get a used trans, get the zip kit, mech to VB seal and the 4 sealing sleeves that seal the valve body to the trans body. (Cobra transmission has them IIRC).

    You'll also need an intermediate plate (the part that sandwiches between the VB halves).

    With those parts, the fluid and filter changed, you'll very likely be happy with the transmission performance.


    My only concern is that you're getting the work done by Level 10........

    I trust them as far as I can throw them. Too many documented shady practices (i.e. selling valve body 'upgrades' that consist of a couple of washers behind the pressure regulator spring)

    Is there another shop in your area that could install the trans and other VB bits?

    Im getting job done by RSWorx. I replaced the VB, rebuilt it basically and i still got P0736. So no way that two VB or TCU’s are bad. I dont jave any more funds to blow on this trans thing. Really, im already thinking about parting car out.

    Well at a minimum, call Cobra transmissions and get a new mechatronic to valve body seal and the 4 sealing sleeves. They're under $100 and it will ensure that the new transmission won't suffer a premature failure as these parts are known to crack.

    Well, another update.

    Handed car over to another shop that specializes in Transmissions. Maybe new set of eyes will see something that other shop overseen. Will post as soon as i get something from them

    Intermittent ESP light comes on and goes after battery change. Comes on usually when slowing down, and goes off when picking up speed, so will look into that as well whether it's related.

    And what about something like this:

    Vehicle speed sensor

    The Vehicle Speed Sensor measures vehicle speed. If it fails or malfunctions the automatic transmission may not operate properly. It may also cause the automatic transmission to go into failsafe mode making it appear that the problem is more severe than it actually is. Recently, a customer came in believing he would need a complete transmission overhaul. After diagnosis, it was determined that it was only a speed sensor issue costing over $3000 less. That's obviously quite the savings.

    Hmm.. might be. But how to check that? Or where that sensor is located. It might be that, but it might not be. Most likely its something wrong mechanically. Cause regardless of speed, reverse is causing most issues, and the gearbox itself is all over the place? Could that sensor cause such extensive issues?

    Well.. Transmission has to get pulled. Internal Pressure Issue. So decided to pull engine and transmission together, and do the timing as well while we're close to have piece of mind. Will Rebuild the whole trans + Timing guides, seals, tensioners, gaskets, rear main seal etc etc etc.. Should get it back monday or tuesday, depending on how damaged the trans is (waiting for necessary parts). RSW couldn't figure it out, while tiny transmission shop did all that free of charge within 1hour of dropping of the car. TCU, Mechatronics, Solenoids got checked out. Communications between TCU and ECU are normal. So i wasted $2,000 on fixing something that most likely wasn't broken. I was told "most likely Your valve body is out. replace Valve body, it SHOULD fix it". Good thing that i didn't pay 3.500$ for a new one. I understand that i took chances and approved everything myself, along with my own parts, but shop like this, should've known better and most decisions were made consulting them. Not mad at anyone in management though, but mechanics should've at least did the tests and diagnosed the issue, instead of hinting "might or might not". Now the trans will have to get rebuilt anyway, and $2000 spent on labor in RSW are worthless. John at RSW helped out a lot, besides that, nothing positive. never going back there again.

    Should have just done a manual swap. I bought an entire swap kit for $1500 shipped...tranny, flywheel, axels f+r, driveline, rear diff etc.....

    Yeah, i could've, but didn't want to. Driving around NYC and North NJ, can't justify to swap to manual. It's just not for me (though in EU had only manuals so driving one isn't an issue). And do add to that, it would add up on labor, and im on a tight budget already (thanks RSW). But thanks Vinny for all the tips and help
