Boy, I didn't want my last post to be like this. I'm moving to Brazil for the next two years and was just going to say my goodbyes. But, I took my car out for a final cruise to Wendover (100 miles of strait freeway from my house). On my way home I thought, "what the heck" and took off at 120 mph for 100 miles of totally strait freeway. Then I stopped at Wal-mart to get some stuff for my dad and my car wouldn't engauge into a forward gear. I can get into reverse, then I take it to nuetral and it's still in reverse and none of the foreward gears will engauge. Is my tranny gone? I know I'm an idiot, but any possitive remarks would be great. I'm in the states until the 7th of May

okay I'll start taking any kind of coments now.... thanks
don't know what to tell ya cept I hope it works out for ya, I personally have never had, nor heard of this problem.
I don't see how driving straight going 120MPH could be hard on the tranny. I can understand it not being the best for the engine. So was it fine until you got back to your car and started it up? That sounds really messed up. I hope that it all works out for you.
u werent like in S3 were u ? :)
I wasn't in S3 and it was fine until I stopped. I don't know what I did. I couldn't get it to go above 120mph. I thought that was kinda weird, I'm pretty sure I've got it up to 125 before. But any ideas are very much appreciated. Thanks
These cars are so electronic - could it be that either the ECU or the transmission computer has "thrown a circuit breaker" due to the speed you were travelling at?

Why not try to reset all computers - disconnect the battery and step on the brakes to drain all current.

Does the tranny fluid smell burnt or look real dark?
I love that stretch of highway between SLC and Wendover :D

Does the light on your dash change when you shift gears?
I'll have to try resetting the electronics, thanks for the idea. I can't see any of the lights due to my home made gauges (if you want to see them go here.

thanks for all the help so far...
