If you are buying the correct transmission fluid for that car for $4 a quart, that is a hell of a bargain but more likely the wrong fluid. That requires ATF+4.

How did you get water in the trans in the first place?

If coolant got into the transmission's fluid and contaminated the transmission, the transmission has to come out. It's done. The coolant tears up the clutches. Time for a rebuild. Flushing isn't going to fix that problem.

thank you gentlmen for your responses, we are moving towrads a low mileagge transmission for the neon, and as far as the water entering the tranny, i discovered as rare as it is that the trans cooler inside the radiator cracked, and as a resultsucked in the antifreeze mixture into the trans.........and u are absolutly correct as the anti freeze compromised integrity of the rtransmission....thank uyou again guys!

That's not so rare. I have seen many, many or them.
