    to buy or not to buy

    Sometimes i do a search on here and the threads that come up are completely un-related? wassup with dat? Secondly, I'm STILL contemplating buying a 98 t/a formula with 145k, but the car stalls out and has no 3rd or 4th gears in the 4l60 trans. So im hoping the stalling is just a fuel pump, but what about the trans? i guess i can have it rebuilt, how much anyone know?
    Or try a junk yard swapper myself, anyone done it ?? laslty buy a monster or some other brand built trans (seems costly) thx dudes.

    You will pay well over $1,000 to have a 4L60E rebuilt and if you want it to handle some power you will spend over $2,000. I have had my tranny out several times....it's not the easiest job I have ever done, and you will need a buddy to help you.

    98 formula

    "Whats the price" 2500 with the fuel pump fixed (it has been looked at and was diagnosed) or 1900 as is, towed to my house. I think it's worth more than that for parts either way. what about you guys...

    Yes, it's "just a formula" and there were "just only 596 of them made with black" was your post just to draw attention to my original T/A depiction? if so that just stood for Tits and ASs, lol

    i had my a4 trans rebuilt for only $800.00. Guy even made it shift the way i wanted. Have it to where it breaks loose from 1st to 2nd if i give it enough gas. Other gears are normal. anyways, it runs as if it were brand spankin new.

    Not sure about the trans. but my fuel pump started going out after I modded and tuned my car. It cost me around 275 or 300 for my Walbro 255L with install.
