First week she took it down to get oil changed. apparently the housing for the oil filter had to be changed to a new and improved bracket. the oil filter that the car was made with no longer was made $500.00 later and new synthetic oil and she came home. I thought they had got to her. A little rechurch and they were right . next the manual trans began popping out of 4th and was hard to get into reverse. Finley down shifting from 5th to 4th it popped out and wouldn't go into any gear. cadistrophic datinachion $3,500.00 and the trans could only be rebuilt.

It's my daughters car. She hit a piece of rubber on the high way. It cracked the thermostat housing, and auxiliary water pump housing. I replaced both pieces and filled with anti freeze. Cranked and ran the car. Drove it 20 miles down the hi-way. It ran fine the best I could tell. When I pulled back in the driveway and shut it off, it never started again. It cranks, runs rough a few seconds and dies. When it starts and I remove my foot from the break , it dies immediately.

The repair shop I go to said the power steering pump is over heating causing the fan to stay on.
To fix they say I need a power steering pump, reservoir, fan at the cost of $1600.00.

When I reached highway speed, I heard a sound like a popcorn popper coming from underneath my car. I checked for tires and anything hanging off the car and found nothing. No fluid is leaking. No warning lights are on. No smells. It shifts and turns fine.
