Mechanic neighbor is going to buy it 'as-is' for $1,500.
Done and done.
:ohdang: that is pretty solid. How much was it worth pre wreck, $2-3k?

Two Camrys and a Funeral.

Because it only had liability coverage. I am a bit confused you didn't know this before making the claim? :iono: No, I didn't. The car is still titled and insured in my mom's name. I carried on with her policy, I never set it up. She was always telling me that I needed full coverage, so I assumed s...

Going to try and pull out the damage, and see if I can get it in a position where I can sell it.
Why isn't it covered?

My cardiologist seems to not be too worried about it and says that if I follow his instruction everything can be pretty much reverted with time and effort.

I suspect these low temps are just measured or reported from bad place, ie post transmission cooler. They usually have thermostats too
That's a good point, maybe point an infared gun at the housing?

Hoping this is a long term fix, and mine only was shuddering for maybe 1k miles.

GM has had at least 2-3 different revisions to the Fluid. It's not even a GM fluid anymore since they fucked it up twice. I think it's Mobil now.

Updates on the :truk: ? How’s it working since the flush?
Jessi has been driving it, but today I helped a neighbor move some shit, and drove it for a while.

It shifts hard (they said it would for about 200 miles) but it doesn't shudder at all.

Most modern cars have a kill for the compressor upon startup.

But yeah man, I want an easy to own appliance for her.
I should get Jessi autocrossing, but she's too scared to drive the E30, and after this, yeah, no.
