84 300D Euro
 I have just got my 84 300D back from taking it to the shop for a transmission filter change and my mechanic said he'd be wasting my time because there was a leak on the right side of the transmission. I have a couple of questions. 1. If I have to have someone do work on this are they going to rebuild the tranny because they're already in there? 2. Does anyone know a good independent mechanic near Kansas City? 3. Without doing a compression check the mechanic also said the motor is about worn out. He said this because he noticed a lot of blow by gasses when he opened the engine oil cap and the car is burning about a quart every 500 miles. Is this a fair assumption without a compression check. The exterior is gorgeous and the car only has 157,000 miles on it. Anyone please help...
