i think the most typical failure is pretty sudden (the gunk trouble, or the clutch pack failure, as it springs from a identifiable action).

many troubles can be electrical, although they may seem at first to be mechanical. hard to troubleshoot, but at least you're not into a new tranny for many $k.

Thanks for your help.

One last question - does it suddenly go or are there warning signs?

Thanks again
