I have an Automatic Suzuki Forenza 2005 with a millage of 95,676.
Drove the car for about a minimium of 3hrs with about 2 short stops in between, when on the Highway the car
starts shaking when I reached 65 m.p.h but I ignored that and kept going. When I finnally get home everything
looked and sounded okay.
The next day when I turned the car on, I noticed the engine light was on. I tried to change gear
(after releasing the emergency of course) and the lever was really stiff, when I finally get to change it to drive, or from N to R,
it made a horrible clunking/cracking sound and the car moved back and forth harshly (shaked) without stepping on the gas.

Then when I step in the gas pedal it barely accelerates and it can't go more then 15 m.p.h.
Scanned the car( with a cheap scanner I bought) and it shows the code P0700 Transmission Control System (MIL REQUEST)
Btw, the problem comes and goes... like in 5 months it worked 2 times( after forcing it to drive) but after parked, had the same problem the next day.
1. Scanned the car by a professional and they found no codes ( unluckily, the car was okay that day) so they couldn't find anything so he charged me $80.
2. We contacted someone to change the mounts, he said he changed them but everything stayed the same so he removed them and
charged me $180 for changing a shock absorber that had nothing to do with it.
3. Searched on the web and found that it could be a Transmission Range Sensor (TRS), bought it, changed it, and nothing.
4. Left the car in another mechanic ( the car was having the problem, ~10 m.p.h) scanned it like 3 times with different scanners and they found the transmission
input and output speed sensors were open so I bought both, he changed the transmission fluid, erased the codes and it WORKED.... for one day. The next day, the same problem.
So can anyone tell me a good news?
I just don't wanna admit that it can be the transmission but if it is,
where can I buy it? or any safety online website to order it?
Thank you in advance!
