Re: transmission computer.
well thats just it. i havent yet rang the guy to find out why it needs it. it is a TR auto, engine unknown. thats all the info i have so far.
also if anyone knows of a website that details parts prices for magnas as well, that would be handy. there is another we are looking at which is a 6 cyl and has 330000ks on it with a loose timing chain, and have spoken to a mech about it and he said the chain isnt so much the problem ($600 to replace if it needs to be) its if it has worn out the oil pump ( $1200 to replace) so am thinking if we get this car to just chuck another engine in it but cant seem to find any prices on an engine from a wrecked magna. $600 from our friendly wrecker should see us another motor shouldnt it?
but anyway i dont understand why a computer would be needed. what could go wrong with it in general? what would make it stuff up?
basically we are looking for a later model car on the cheap and we both know that they arent going to be perfect which we can accept but we dont want to waste all our money on a bargain only to find its going to cost $2000+ to get back on the road.
