This engine has a lot of problems with the thermostat which is a 1.5 hour job to replace and about $80 for part. So total cost of repair should be around $250 at the shop. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

One mechanic says its the transmission, I think its something to do with the torque conversion part or it, not a specific gear. Aweful vibration but only in the right combination of engine speed and gear. When the car downshifts and coast to a stop, the noise/vibration vanishes. When I start accelerating it doesn't start until the car is appraoaching what I would guess is fourth gear. But the symtoms come and go throughout the upper gears. I was going to do a ATF and filter change to eliminate that part. The fluid is full and doesn't seem discolored. … read more
