ok heres the run down, i woke up this morning to take it to the dealer and there was fluid all on the undercarriage of my car and on the driveway. i drove it to the dealer and my gas gauge was dancing like crazy and my oil temp rose 60 degrees in a minute or so and got above 200 degrees. the service guy at the dealership said my transmission fluid is all over the underside of my car. he said i blew a pump or something idk. i just hope my transmission isnt shot. neways he said to get the transmission out to look at it is gonna take 5 hours of labor which ='s out to $450. then they have to fix whatevers wrong. im screwed....
