Well I bought the car for 500$ so I wasn't expecting much out of it. It started a little high rpm wise, but other then that it drove like a peach. I changed the fluids bought new tires and have it a good once over. I then took the car on 3 long distance drives and it preformed phenomenally. It does get hot when it sits in traffic but highway driving is fine. On the return of our last trip there was a low whine coming from the engine compartment Near the passenger side, the lights were also pulsing with the engine so I figured the alternator was going to go, so we get home and park it, the next morning I go to work and my fiancé brings the car to my work and it's gushing tranny fluid. She drove it back home and said it could only do about 20. I couldn't believe she made it the half mile back. We haven't started it since. I'm hoping no bands are broken and there aren't any metal shavings in the tranny. About to go try and diagnose my problem
