Should we expect transmission to die soon??? Should we pay for new a/c or just wait it out?
Van has 135000 miles on it, driving fine, well maintained. Currently has small transmission fluid leak, but all fluids at good level. Anyway to prevent transmission failure or is it inevitable? Should we bother replacing transmission or just send her to the junkyard? We would like a/c again, but at $1200 and possible transmission loss, would we get any life out of it. We like the van, have small kids and would prefer to drive it rather than get a newer one that might just have the same problems. Any thoughts?
Leak doesn't equal imminent failure. Have the transmission leak repaired, if it is just a seal or gasket. If there's a crack in the casing of the trans, that's a bigger problem. If you like the A/C and the van, consider buying the aftermarket evaporator core, which Dodge dealers usually offer for around $400 less than the factory core. They are available but not all dealers will offer them.
