Doug,

Hate to be the party killer here.....but......

That is what happened with ours. Only difference was that we lost ours coming off of an interstate. It sounded like a slight hiccup when we shifted, and we were stuck in 3rd. Wouldn't come out of gear, until we shut it down. Then we were stuck in 1st.

That being said, it wouldn't hurt to have another opinion.

FWIW
