ok then, i thought it may have been a forum member

Just a thought though, you could be spending $900 on a used auto that may show signs of wear a few months later....... where you could spend $1750 fully rebuilding it so you dont have to worry about it for a long time

i know when i had mine rebuilt in my old EF, it was strange how well a new auto behaves compared to a good used item

hopefully it works out for you

okso i started up my car tonight to keep battery charged and to make sure its right to have new tranny done soon. its a cold night but i noticed crystal like stuff inside muffler tip and a bit of what i thin was water! the exhaust fumes were really potent! does this sound bad? i changed oil not long ago and gave it a carbon cleanout too. theres a lot of black caked on stuff inside the muffler! what could this be?
