I passed up a 99 for 600 bucks because I didnt want to mess (and not equipped to) with it. Same thing, LIM failure caused the engine to lock up, then it had been sitting in a yard for over a year with the nasty mess baking in there. Yeah I'm pretty sure the motor was scrap iron. Immaculate otherwise, and roughly 100k miles. probably still sitting in thier yard unless they had it hauled off
You bet...it'll be a drop the cradle for the swap.
Yeah, that'* going to be a bizitch to do I would think..... like crzydmnd72 I wouldnt want to do anything that extreme unless I absolutely had to.
Wife to me- "Well, if it were YOUR Bonneville, you'd fix IT! But since it'* the mini-van, you just say "Heck with it!"!!!"
I'd respond- "Yeah, and your point is?"
Not tough at all. Pull it in.. unbolt/undo what'* necessary. Lift it a little. put the jackstands under the frame. Unbolt...reach over and press the "Up" button on the lift until the van is free and we've got room to unbolt the trans bell housing.
