Hi all, Bought my first 1.8 in brand new in 99, Now I have a 99 GLX 2.8L but it's broken:( What to do? Hope to draw on experience to figure what to do next. Bottom line, 117,000 miles, recently was told a new tranny was needed even though it seemed to be driving fine ( Code PO741) Then it wouldn't start this weekend and my mechanic said he can't find any compression in the engine... Head or total rebuild. Well, blue book tells me it's not worth, but it's so pretty... What would you do? Part it out, not sure I want to do that in my driveway... Sure as hell don't want to give it to some hook for a couple 100 bucks....
