Jay at First Texas Honda reports that a retaining bolt used to attach the transmission cable came loose — which explains why Jacquela could not shift gears or get her key out of the ignition; the computer “thought” the car was still in Drive.
All fixed. No charge. Jay believes this is one small item potentially shaken loose during replacement of the engine.
Saturday morning, Jacquela and Steven return the loaner to First Texas and pick up Jacquela’s civic — and off we go to Emerald Hill, Costco, lunch, Lowe’s. No problems with car.
