Hi, I took it to my mechanic, and the whole rear end needs replaced. I
guess he's getting one for $200 from a junk yard and charging me $250
for labor. Does this sound right?
Now my 1989 Cougar won't start. They put a brand new battery in with
new terminals, and when you let it sit for more than a few hours, the
battery runs down. How frustrating to have both of your vehicles down
within a couple of days?! Maybe I should start a new thread on the
Thanks for your response!
