Well the wife was driving my VT V6 wagon on the open road sitting at 105km, no issues or sounds, the wife stoped at a lay-by, after about 5 min the wife put the the car into drive and found it had a funny sound coming from the box under 10km over this speed the noise goes away. Now the car has no 2nd gear or reverse. The box changes fine apart from the large jump from 1st to 3rd (high revs to low revs) no bangs, jolts or anything. When i put into reverse nothing happens just revs like it was still in park. The transmission shop said it seems like a thing called a "Sun drive gear????" it's in the middle of the box and if that goes the rest of the gears will not be far behind. Told looking at around about $2100 (NZD) to fix and recon box. Wife drove the wagon drove the car over 120kms from where she was at the speed limit to get it home. Any ideas. Also how do i find the box code (eg 4HDD, 6HDD etc) this is not anywere on the box as needed so i can replace the box for under 600 nzd and i will replace myself if needed.
