Post Need Help Fast
today my power stearing went out and fund out my rack n pinion was leaking fluid so the shop wanted $550 for the fix with a 4 wheel alightment but i already put over 2k into the car just fixing problems over time. Currently my end clutch is bad, rear main seal is cracked because its leaking engine oil, motor mounts are bad, and my IAC is bad on top of this new problem.. idk what to do i want to get rid of this pos but idk how. Anyone have any ideas?

Spend the money and fix the problems? I don't really see any other solution here...

Two options: fix it or Bitch out of the dsm game. It's not for everyone. If you can't keep up with it maybe you should sell it and buy something else.

if you could do the rack and pinion yourself you'd save a lot of money, and those other things aren't that expensive, or difficult.

Stay classy San Diego

all your problems can be fixed by your own two hands. Dsmtuners, vfaq, dsmtalk has a lot of write ups on it. Rack and pinion can be fixed fairly easy.

the rack and pinion and the alignment go hand in will need the alignment done after the rack and pinion gets fixed. one suggestion for that is maybe trying getting it rebuilt. it may save you on some cash...
