I need help now, My car is sitting at shop waiting to have my auto transmission pulled to either:
1. replace front seal $1,200
2. replace transmission $2,500 minimum
Care has 207k miles on it. Engine leaks oil as well. Is it even worth it to throw this much money at a car with over 200k?
I could potentialy call mechanic and tell him to just not do anything and have it towed to my girlfriends dad's (he has a huge garage with lift) and attempt this on my own. I have pretty good mechanical skills but im no mechanic. What do you think I should do?
Also, does it make sense that the front seal blew out because my filter was clogged? Think my transmission will last?
