New shop has diagnosed three bad gears (worn down) after complete teardown of transmission. Warranty has decided to not to cover this $1700 repair because of the Monster stage 1 installed less than 5k miles. Shop wants basically $800 in parts, and $900 in labor to fix the transmission. I should have never put in the stage 1 monster. Now I'm out a lot of money because of this decision.
The shifting was an issue well before installing the aftermarket clutch. They could never diagnose what was wrong. Dealership manager is trying to get warranty company to cover repairs, but I don't think that'll happen even considering the circumstances. Shop wants the $800 in parts for the three gears. I've searched for the entire gear cluster with minimal results. Can anyone help here? What should I do? Think at this point I will cancel the warranty and get back whatever I can from the $2000+ spent on it. This GTO has been a huge PIA for having 60k miles. Would have never expected so many issues on a low mileage vehicle...
A Monster Stage 1 clutch is not responsable for transmission internal damage. Your warranty company is being retarded.
Its about the equaviant of an LS7 clutch upgrade from GM.
