And at this point, I just assume replace it with something that I DON'T have to work on(too much).
We have a 1988 nova with the 4a engine, and manual tranny, same thing as the corolla. Engine might fetch a few as it can be swapped into MANY cars from the Celica to corolla, etc. Or go find a trashed celica, make a fun lil weekend/project car.

i look at it this way. if you already own the car and it is paid for and you have to replace every part on the car at least you know what you have in it and eventually it will be like new.
