Yea...I would, probably wouldn't hurt. I don't truly know if it was the Lucas, SeaFoam, or both together that fixed it. It seems likely it was the combination of both..but again, further testing would need done to determine.

I pay a lower rate on the Zilla anyway, as it'* listed as a 'project' car with less than 2500 miles driven per year.
Not true in NY. If you drop insurance, you have to turn in the plates. Even just getting storage insurance. If you want to keep the same plates, you can pay extra to have them hold the plates for you to put back on, but you still have the extra costs.

Storage insurance for me though is only like $120/6 months.

And if you are a gambler, the yard by me you could get out of with a trans for $100 with 30 day.

oh, and wilberts has a 1 yr 12k mile warrenty on most motors/ trannys
This is exactly how it is in CT, and it sucks. The DMV tried to suck a $200 fee out of me because I didn't turn in the plates when I took insurance off the 94. They didn't get my money though. :P

Ryan, slap some POR-15 on the Ei and drive it in the winter if you have to. And even if you don't get the POR-15 done, ONE winter will not harm it, especially if you spray the underbody off once a week.

I wish... They dont have the spare $ at this time of year.
I dont want to wait that long anyway, im hoping i have the $ for it with in 2 paychecks (bi-weekly)


Yup, NYS is on of the sucky TAX and Charge for everything states. Cancel insurance you have to turn in the plates right away. If you do not. They can suspend you DL and will rack up some nice fees. Starting at $8 a day... + Other fees.

*Update*


So, heres what iv been thinking sense the trans is dead and i need to replace it... Im thinking about doing a gear change up. The place where im going to be getting the trans from, hoping they will have it in 3-4 weeks. They have Two 2.84 Gear transes and One 3.06 Trans. I have a PCM/Eprom from a 94 SE Bonnie from NEBF07'* yard run. So im pretty sure i have everything i need to do it. When Don (JRs3800) lookup it up he confirmed that it does have 3.06 programmed into it and it was form a 94.

The only thing him and i are worried about is the axles, if there the same as the 2.84'*. From everything iv seen on line and at the parts stores, there is only One size for the SE'* axle. Rock Auto, Advance, NAPA all seem that way, So im pretty sure ill be fine.

Other then that one thing, i think everything is the same. So if the junk yard still has that trans and everything seems ok with it, then it looks like i will have some nice 3.06 gears when its all set and done

That'* pretty cool Ryan. Get a little more pep from the old girl. Are you concerned about the slight offset in fuel mileage?

not really, lol... it will still be A LOT better then the SSEI

The way i drive to and from work.. im lucky to be in the 20'*

It going to bring some life back into that SE for sure. Its going to make driving in the winter a lot better.
Hmmm i wonder.. sense my Sub frame is getting old and rusty and has two rust holes starting in it.. how much more work would it to be to change that out when doing the trans?
