Time to take it to a trained professional. So much can be electronically related. Wondering if you jostled something loose during your motor mount swap.
It's possible. Car ran great even after the motor mount swap. I did get some vibration from the stiffer mounts but that was about it...

Is it now mysteriously drive-able? With the crank position sensor ( not saying that is your issue) after I sat on the side of the road the car was able to be driven onto the Flatbed. Since I already had called the tow truck and did not want to dive across many lanes of traffic again with no ability to drive I had it taken to the dealer and repaired. Yours needs a visit to a shop obviously something went wrong and it needs looked at.

I checked for codes with my scan tool. No codes and "check transmission" message is gone.

I agree. I've already contacted my speed shop for options. It's still not drivable despite the message dissapeering. It's likely that the CVT band snapped because the car acts like it's in park or neutral when in d or r... Who knows why it snapped. Could have overheated or something else was the cause.

Absolutely. I'm keeping a positive outlook. At least the Mustang isn't in the shop for repairs. It will be FAST when I pick it up this week...

Well... A light at the end of the tunnel for ZOOM. The shop that has done so much work on the Z found me a CVT with 20k miles for about $860 and it comes with a 1 year warranty as a bonus... They can get the car back on the road within the next couple of weeks. The Mustang should also be done either today or tomorrow as well... Things are looking good for the Z...

I am going to have the shop dissect the old CVT to find out the cause of the failure. Maybe I will have some pictures of the carnage.

And here I thought I was done modding ZOOM. She's getting a Koyorad radiator and an aftermarket CVT cooler since the Koyorad doesnt have provisions for the OEM CVT cooler.
