Is my transmission gone on my 2005 Cadillac Cts

Asked by Mar 09, 2018 at 04:38 AM about the 2005 Cadillac CTS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car 2005 Cadillac Cts with 235,000 miles
on it had a delayed pull off once I stopped at
a stop sign. Got my car to a transmission
shop because It also gave a jolt when I put
my car in drive. The mechanic there said
that my level of transmission is fine but I
need some work on the trans. I dont see my
levels being the same level. I havent had my
transmission fluid changed in quite some
time. #Years. He told me it would be
expensive to fix. I told him I will junk it. He
then said he will buy it for 200 dollars. I feel
he is trying to scam me. My trans maybe
going bad but if I change the fluid i may buy
myself some time. Until I get my finances
together for another car. Please help

Changing the fluid at this point in time will be a wasted expense. If you got 235K out of your trans, you did good. Drive it until you can get another car and trade it in for more than $200. The car is worth no more than $2500 and a rebuilt trans will cost that much or more. It's worth scrap value.
