What do you guys think? I e-mailed the guy and asked him for pics and I'll post them when i get it. This would be an EXCELLENT car to use in between now and when I get the money for the tranny rebuild

Honestly...I think you'd be able to find a used trans somewhere around the country cheaper than that.

Is used a consideration or only rebuild? (I know the decision isn't all yours)

Well, won't that be a little risky getting a used one? I guess that would be an option if you could tell me where to look.

you can find places that will give 30day, 90day and some times 120Days Warranty'* with them. and there around $250-$450 normally for a used one.

Alright, I guess I'll call around to see what I can find. Who on the board has a used tranny in their car?

Go to AAMCO, get the lifetime guarantee, expect to blow it at least once more, but never pay for it again. I did that the first time my Taurus blew a trans, and the next two were free.

Seriously, though, ask your local GM dealer who they buy from and go there.


Now, where'* that SCX, I got a call to make...

BTW, I do still have your manifolds...

Personally...I wouldn't let Aamco near my car if it were on fire. My experience is going to them is equivalent to being a willing participant in your own gang rape.

I've put tons of used transmissions in cars with my mechanic buddy. Look for a good warranty if you can.
