the first thing I would do is insist that the dealer fix it or drop the price some because of it, then I would check the hydraulic fluid level in the pump, if it's low, it can cause issues like this.

I doubt a torque converter will cause a rough idle, I would start with the easiest and work your way up from there, I would start by changing the fuel and air filters, they are easy to do and if it's...

it's not unheard of to have one leaf spring sag more than the other over time, they are not always tempered the same way and at the same time. and the fact that the drivers side is sagging more may...

thanks, no I didn't get the DVD, I did watch as many videos as I could find on u-tube, the instructions that came with the top were OK but not great, the best thing to do is use ALOT of common sense,...

thanks, I thought about that and there are tons of junkyards around here, just haven't had time to hit any yet, thought it might be easier to just buy a new one if there is anyplace that sells them.

again, it depends on the car wash and the louvres, if you get plastic louvres I would stay away from the "brush" type and hit the touchless or brushless washes. I think there are some louvres...

how many miles are on the transmission, sounds like the syncro's are gone for first and second. how does it shift if the car is moving (1'st to 2'nd).
