    Thanks people!
    Please bare with me, I'm new to this.
    The question is: It seems like my transmission is on it's way out. It shifts hard, and jumps into gear. It also winds out when going over 45 m.p.h.. Help?
    Buying a new transmission is OUT OF THE QUESTION!

    Not as many as the 98..
    Not exactly sure on the shifting hard part.. When my trans went out, it didnt want to shift or go above a certain mph for that matter. I ended up rebuilding it myself.

    I was told that it might be the shifting solenoid. Maybe?
