hmm...maybe i should get a motor.
my guy at the junk yard can let me bite one for a hundred bucks.
thanks to the maxima i now know what to look for when buying a motor or tranny from the junker's...impounded or booted cars.
or i can spend another...$200 at another junkyard and get the motor from there, and they now offer a one year warranty.
