Hi all, any advice sure would be appreciated. I bought the car two years ago. It's been good to me. Only 160k when I bought it. Well the last two months or so it's been surging when cold, not shifting at high r.p.m, and feeling a little ragged on front end suspension. Took it in, and got a list of lots of things that could be addressed. It's got a leaky rear shaft seal on the transmission. It's got leaking fuel return hoses. Rear shocks leaking oil, reservoir empty. Belt tensioner shock and belt noisy and cracked ($500), engine and transmission mounts collapsed ($400), front struts and mounts could be replaced ($) and that's a start ; ) Basically, 1500 or 2000 just for stuff that "needs" to be fixed. transmission overhaul may or may not be called for in the medium term. I comp'd the repairs at another shop in town, and it's about the same overall as the first on their quote. I don't know what to do. I like the car--it's plush over speed bumps, smooth cruising on I-5, and the heat blows hot and when I first got it it got 29 m.p.g. (last two months been getting 24). repair or replace?
