i'm pretty sure since when you start it, it suonds like a diesel, the engine
the synchronizer was not screwed in properly by this guy that was helping me
do it. i otld htem, it's not done right blah blah because i started it, the
rpm was wacky, and they said oh no it's fine. so i think the oil pressure
caused the synchronizer to pop out
and guess what happened? oil light came on, engine sounds like diesel
Well, the good news is if you fixing it that its a vulcan. Plenty of 3.0's
around reasonable and they rarely fail. You could probably get one
from $200 to $600 if you shop around. A duratec would be MUCH
more expensive. Changing it is another matter.
If you sold if for parts, it would be $200 to $500 complete depending
on condition. Hell, i would buy it for that much if it was close to
yeah i know
the synchronizer drives a gear that drives the oil pump
my uncle is an ASE certified transmission specialist. he drove it. when i
told him there was something wrong, he said reset the computer and i'll
drive it around. and then he sent it home
If you shop around, you should be able to get a 3.0 for under $500.
There are so many around, and the fact they rarely fail puts you
in the drivers seat to deal on one. There even on Ebay from time
to time. A duratec is another matter. You might also watch your
local papers for people selling parts off of a freshly wrecked car. What part
of the country are you in?
