How do you know you need a new transmission?

If your tranny is already goin bad id go have a little fun with it, what are you gonna break if its already bad. I wouldn't worry about anything happening to the engine or anything like that

If your tranny is going.. get it checked asap. Ours was acting funny before it went but we drove it anyways. We ended up cracking the case, in which cost us approx. $ 800.00 more than if it hadn't been cracked. Not too mention, it took almost a month before a second hand one was available.
