Subject: Opinion sought - automatic transmission overhaul worth it?


Well, with the way my car has been behaving lately, I think it's about due for a transmission overhaul. It's a 1995 900 S 2.3NA automatic with almost 160000 miles on it. It is otherwise mechanically sound and I've put about US$1000 into it over the past six months on typical older car maintenance issues (major service, idler pulleys, ignition switch). About how much is it going to cost me to have a professional overhaul the automatic transmission? This isn't exactly my 'dream car', per se, so I'm not really interested in putting a lot of money into restoring it and keeping it for the rest of my life, but I'd like to hang on to it for the next few years at least. I don't really care for automatic transmission in general, so is this a good excuse to give up on the car and look for another? Will the difference in resale value after an overhaul be greater than the cost of one? Thanks in advance for any and all replies. Andrew -- agreenbu Return to Main Index
