Hi everyone,
I own a 1985 300 turbo diesel, about 280,000 miles on her. I haven't named her, but I'm pretty fond her just the same. She has been sitting in my driveway for about 6 months, wanting a new transmission. I was kind of mad at her and not sure if I would give her one....she gave out on the way to my birthday weekend camping trip. I just wasn't sure she would be dependable and was getting tired of the heat (A/C not working). Well, after weighing the options of a new (used) car purchase I've decided to give her another chance. I've got a quote of $2,200 to put in a rebuilt transmission. I'd like to ask around this forum about a good mechanic in the San Fernando Valley, and hear from other 300d owners about taking care of their cars. I lack confidence when it comes to car repair but am interested in learning. That's about all for now. Thanks for listening.
