Should I start looking somewhere else?...
Here'* the deal, no matter how much TLC I give the machine, it looks like it may not go through another winter :
-Transmission has a hard time shifting in first gear when cold, sometimes won't and I have to fiddle a bit. It also definetly won't go in reverse when cold.
-Piston rings are mostly shot, takes some cranking to start and smells like unburnt gas for a while until warmed up a bit. I guess piston rings VS ignition because power'* there when I need it and it doesnt misfire.
-Supercharger is eating itself up slowly.
-And then there are wheel bearings to do, rear brakes, rack and pinion...
From your experience, is there a point where someone should start looking for another car or its just a patience thing and with some parts from time to time it can (in all consideration of reliability vs age) defy time?
I love this machine and the more parts I put in it the least I wanna let it go but damnit, is it worth it? It still stays cheaper than 400$/month + insurance but it eats lots of time.
