I would do a search on this website to confirm, but as I understand it, the trans will be stuck in one gear and you will have a light on the dash. As well as an odd symbol in the gear number screen. (This pertains to what I remember about the first gen cars though). Also, the 1st gen cars with the 2.0 engines apparently have the TCM integrated into the ECU. There is/was a huge amount of info on these cars on this website, the trick is to find it...Also, is there an atricle explaining what the common code and symptoms for a tcm is? I took it to a local franchise type shop and had a guy come out and scan it and tell me it was the TCM and hand me his business card. Seemed like a pretty legit guy but I just want to confirm the symptoms.
