So if you can't do the job yourself it can cost up to a grand to have a shop do it. You have an 18 year old car, and it is one of those that don't hold value very well and the cost of repairs will either meet or exceed the total value of the car. So in your case I would say to get rid of it. You might get a little more for it by selling it yourself than any car dealer will give you for it. HTH
