well i just blew up my transmission last week. i have already pulled mine out, but now where do i go? i cannot find the transmission anywhere. the only one that i have found, is fucked up. but they only want 75$. should i get the transmission, and try to sell it real quick to some shmuck, or what. i love my car, but i do not think that i am going to find the transmission and everything i need for less than 200 now. i am considering selling the car as it sits.

91 egt. 1.8 ltr. caymen. 184000 miles. new front tires. every reciept from the day the car was made. i am the 2nd owner. custom 2 1/4 " exaust. hi performance ignition coil. 9.3 mm spark plug wires. bumped up timing. running low 8's to high 7's in the 0-60. custom foglights. i know its not saying much, but they are brighter than the headlights. i have people flashing me all night long. slightly custom interior. i would like to get 1100 out of it, but make your best offer. i am going to hate seeing it go.



alright, i need to put this in here also. i have an extra set of rims. i have also done some special mods. i have installed my own set of daytime running lights. when you start the car, the fog lights and the running lights will come on. i have it all run through the stock fog light switch, so you can turn the off if you want to. i will let my cd player go with it. it is a pioneer p4000. it come with a slim remote. it also has a built in car alarm, which i have installed. plus i have new speakers installed and also have tweeters installed in the door panels. there is also an on/off remote on the key chain, so you can listen to the radio without the key in the car.

That would probably be a felony (in most states) called fraud... don't do it.

Either fix the car and drive it, or sell it as is.. but don't sell someone a car with a fuxxored tranny and represent it as being fine.

Sounds like a decent car as-is. :wink:

I seriously doubt that an Escort (and many other cars) are worth much more than salvage if they won't move under their own power. If you really hope to get $1100 out of it find a U-pull-it yard and grab a used transmission or just rebuild the one you have now.

Sounds like you have a good thing going, Like ol' boy said I would fix the tranny too. And keep everything as is..Sounds like you were pretty happy with her before the tranny went out to do all those mods to it. Anyway, best of luck..
I'm way the hell over here in Italy otherwise I would considering buying it just because what you have allready done to it.
