well, the PA is pissing about a quart of coolant every 24 hours. and the waterpump does not sound healthy on cold startup. that coupled with the fact the lowest quote i got to do my trans, motor mounts and engine cradle mounts being $3,300.00 I think i just entered the used car market.

Wow...Sorry to hear that Jason.
I think if I keep My PA, I better have a budget of $1500+ per year in repairs too!
My list seems endless, I just want to get another 60 K out of mine. If the trans ever goes, just call it a day and move onto something else is my plan as well.
What about buying your Dads PA? He never uses it..
