The transmissions cost $3K to install. If the car's in pretty good condition then I would fix it since the rest of the car is very reliable. If you find a used transmission at car-part.com, as an example, make sure they give you a 1yr warranty.
Call Dublin Auto Repair and have them check the relay, fuse, pressure switches and to see if the system has R134a in it. (925)828-0243
I doubt they are related. All sounds like maintenance issues.
It might just be a belt or the tensioner. Have it checked out.
Need to bring it in to check the blow motor and the resister.
Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Fix the car and make it roadworthy again since that's far less expensive than buying a new vehicle not to mention the insurance costs and addl car payments. If the exterior and interior are shot then I would consider it and take better care of the next new car.
Description is vague. Search under the dash on the left side.
Change the fluid and see if it helps. If not then your pump is worn out.
Check the fluid first. Does it move in any gear?
Here's the deal. You may be able to find some decent deals on very used cars in that price range but have them inspected by a qualified shop before the actual purchase. Half the cars we see after the purchase are pieces of crap with thousands of dollars of repairs needed right now. Spend the extra $100.00 to have someone let you know what the condition is...
