Hey guys & gals.

Before plopping down the money.

Edit: well folks. I guess it wasn't meant to be. Sold out from under me.

I have a 95 also and I would recommend asking about the history of the Transmission. If original, its getting into a mileage where problems are not uncommon. If rebuilt be sure to find out where it was done. The 4T60-E transmission is the weak link in these cars and rebuilds are quite pricey.

Hey Matthew, welcome to the group. I noticed you're from Fort Wayne, try to get it on a rack and check for that dreaded cancer.

Already done. Relatively cancer free. Some light stuff underneath. But nothing serious

Cancer = rust.

Maybe your car has a case of congestive heart failure?
