I have recently noticed when I was trying to increase speed in my car up from a stop up to 20mph that I have low power and it takes her a second to get there. Once I do she is fine. She will carry me up the Hwy. My regular mechanic was trying to tell me that it would cost me $3400 in repairs for a new transmission or $2400 for a used transmission installation. I have been in love with this car for some time. I have taken care of the body, regular maintenance, she starts first try. Then I run into this. I've 260000 miles on her at this point. I'm not ready to give her up. I'd like to turn her into a collector's item. Keeper her into my old age if that is even feasible. I've had her for 11 years so far.
