Unfortunately, this is exactly what it is. The 1995 was known for this defect, which was covered under warranty for the 1st two years, but no longer. It is an engine removal and teardown project. Expect it to cost $1000 - $1500 at a dealer.

Search here for "sprag clutch", and you'll find lots of info.
