Do an auto to manual swap. I did it and so have many others. If you shop wisely, you can do it for about $1000. There are many write ups on the interweb.

Hey OP, we don't do that here. Go to the other forum or be a gentlemen. If you don't like the answer just sit back and wait for more reply's. That's no way to reply to someone trying to help you.

You could have the old one out and new one installed in 15 minutes. Plug & Play. Don't bother opening yours up and trying to solder it. Not worth it. I would disconnect the battery first before...

Do a fluid and filter change first. Make sure you use the correct fluid. Then go from there. Could be just a clogged filter if it wasn't changed as part of the swap.

Are there any drivability issues or just the light? If not, I wouldn't worry too much about a catastrophic failure but I would get it scanned asap to avoid a bigger problem. Also, who installed it 2...

If you plan on keeping the car, the all aluminum Mishimoto is a real good radiator with a lifetime warranty. I think I paid $255 for mine. Of course, the Behr OEM radiator is adequate and should last...

Now that he knows it starts, I agree with South Park. I was just trying to tell him the cheapest route in case he toasted his engine. I have the Mishimoto in mine and it has served me well.

That would suck. Get a Nissen radiator from Rock Auto for $100 and start with that. If you hydrolocked, you could be in trouble.

Being that you will need a radiator, start with that. If you shut it down right away, the head should be unaffected. 60k miles on a '94? Wow, you want to sell the car as is?

In that case you should mask the car yourself and go to Maaco for a cheap paint job. Especially since you don't plan on keeping the car.

Good point, I changed the bearing at the time so I didn't care or notice if I ruined the bearing. I heated the hub.

I don't see how not plugging up the vacuum hose on the exhaust would cause the tranny to want to start in 4th. I'm with Harry about him boogering up the linkage.
