Default Transmission Problem

I have a 2004 Coupe. I stopped at a traffic light yesterday in NYC and the car would not move (it had no sign of trouble). The engine was running. F1 could shift "1" or "R" but it would not engaged. Does anyone know what the problem is? Is the clutch worn down too far? The check engine and transmission lights were "ON" (The transmission light was ON and OFF for about 15 minutes before it turned solid and the check engine light lit up). The car was towed back to FM dealer in Edison, NJ. Does anyone know any good Maserati mechanic in NJ for out of warranty work?

Get an OBDII reader and that should give you a first indication of whats wrong. Its obvious from your description that the transmission has a problem, hopefully someone with more technical knowledge can give a better answer than me.

The dealer diagnosed the problem was the clutch. $2500 for the labor, $3761.00 for the clutch assemble and $750 for the bell housing if needed. Does anyone know if it is a fair price? Thanks all for the info.

Personally - I would walk away and flat bed to either an independent in NJ or to Kent Wentworth at Universal Autosports on Long Island - Kent was at FM LI and is a certified master Maserati mechanic

I just want to finalize what happen after the clutch replacement from FM of Edison, NJ. The pump fails again less than a month while stop in front of the traffic light. It tows back to the dealer again. This time they clam the pump fail caused by the hydraulic power unit which is next to the gear box. It is $4500 for the job. The total cost for repair the F1 pump is more than $15,000. The car is riding well for the pass three months and gaining more confidence back to go on longer distances. I don’t like to go back to FM of Edison, NJ. The service manager is so rude and don’t tread their customers right. If I know other mechanic can service the car well locally and I will not go back to them. Thumb down to FM of Edison, NJ.

Get yourself to Universal in Glen Cove, Long Island. You'll have to get it over a couple of bridges, but these guys will treat you right and you will not see ridiculous fees like this. Even their flatbed driver Larry will give you a sense of sanity. Kent will do the work and will talk honestly about problems and issue resolution. Call Anthony who runs service. I know of three of us on the forum (also Ramp and Maseratisportgts) use Universal.

Give us a total parts/labor list for this -sounds like actual robbery.
