#1275803 - 07/11/06 02:37 AM

I have not been on CEG in a long time... I have been working so much and I have been having some relationship problums with my friend that is a girl. My contour is running good however my car got T boned in my girlfriends driveway! Her brothers dumb A#$ friends! Its just the rear drivers door and I was pissed! Then We went camping about two months ago and someone side swiped the passenger side! Man o Man, my ride has a good about of body damage now! The tranny started to grind when im really pushing it into third! Only 82K! How are you guys doing?

Things are well. Don't worry about the body damage. Take care of the tranny first.

Try Ford Honey tranny fluid change.

I'm new here and still in that "infatuation" stage with my CSVT.

Just remember back to that happy place...

~ harp strumming sounds and mist ~

ahhhhh....the first day you picked it up...the first time you washed it....ahhhh






OK! snap!snap! Back to reality!

Feel better now?

Let me tell you guys, When I picked up my first Gen Contour I knew NOTHING about the car at all. All I knew was that It was not a 1990 toyota corrola DX silver with a manual tranny and a million miles. Which I had two of... Same color interior tranny everything.. Haha! Well I found my contour through autotrader test drove it at night. Bought it the next day. It was really clean but I topped it off with my mods. Now its just like aaaaaahhhh! What happened?

"The tranny started to grind when im really pushing it into third! Only 82K!"

Age is also a factor. Car is 11 - 12 years old and rubber seals and other parts wear with age.
