My opinion is your mechanic is going to say your going to have to rebuild or replace your transmission to continue to drive it. So do you spend $1500-$3500 in repairing your 18 year old car worth $500, or do you trade up to something newer and something someone won't laugh at?

I know all that. But it has sentimental value. I'm hoping its the torque converter or something cheep
