Got the car into the bay and hooked up the battery charger. Starter clicked as if the bendix was pushing out, but not turning the motor. I was hoping it would start and drive.
Up in the air and I pulled the majority of the trans bolts. Oddly enough no fluid came out. Plastic that covers the starter/flex inspection area was out of whack, one wheel splash shield missing, tie rods on with a couple of threads, trans to engine bolts were snug, not tight, TC bolts snug not tight. Hmmmm
Here'* what was in the pan when I took it down.
Tie rod end, murdered boots on both sides.
Motor mount has seen better years
Picked up a pile of parts and took the trans out last night. Made the girl dinner as it was her first day at a new job.
