You're right, but some of us stubbornly think we can beat the system. When it comes to old cars, it's not what is okay and doesn't need fixing, but, rather, what does need fixing.
In addition to mileage, age takes its toll on some parts and components, and my 300 ZX is 25 years old. I think age doesn't affect mechanical parts much, if at all, though, or am I wrong on this? Does age per se take a toll on engines, transmissions, and steering components if fluids are changed at proper intervals? Body parts, paint, and rubber and plastic parts degrade with age, or course. This occurs at a significantly reduced rate if the car is garaged, washed and waxed regularly, etc., but some age-related deterioration still occurs.

I think age is much more of a factor on body, paint, upholstery and certainly suspension bushings.
But seals in engines and transmissions deteriorate from age.
And metal can just fatigue---control arms can crack, etc.

#5624 of 5658 1992 trooper transmission wiring/harness diagram
Jan 04, 2013 (10:50 am)
Here is my situation, I didn't want to pay $3300 PLUS for a transmission rebuild on my bad transmission (very few options on the big island to fix this), 1992 Trooper S 3.2L DOHC. So I bought a parts car from Hilo for $500, drove it to Kona, car drove great, registration is out 9 years, car had dents all over! I raided it for all kinds of parts, I'm stoked! I have the transmission in, no problems, except I have 3 sets of wires coming off the harness that I need to plug into the tranny, I'm an idiot and an amateur, this is my first and last transmission swap/rebuild, I didn't mark them! Most of the plugs are unique and I had no problem connecting. I have 3 sets of plugs, very small ones, the all are the same size. I am color blind and need to get some help with the colors. I can't find a wiring diagram for this situation. Can anyone give me advice?

I checked this website and they do seem to have a particular wiring diagram that might help you with your '92 Trooper transmission wiring. You'll have to register first but that's easy. Good luck!

maxebilly, gbrozen, burdawg and shifty:
On the off chance that any of you were wondering (or losing sleep) about the outcome of my 300ZX, I sold it for $495 from Craigslist. Someone who has a '87 2+2 will use the parts from that car to replace the parts on my '88 that wouldn't pass inspection. The good things on my car were the engine, straight body without rust, clean and well kept leather interior, four new tires (two had not yet been mounted), cold A/C and T-top that doesn't leak.
I was glad to sell it to someone who will drive it.
Thanks again for your valuable input.

Sounds like a good decision to me, all things considered.

I have no morning after regrets, and the buyer was happy, since he already owned a donor car. Two needy cars will make one daily driver, with the one I owned being the survivor.

#5630 of 5658 Repair cost on a Chevy Intake Manifold
Feb 25, 2013 (8:33 am)
I have aChevy Impala 3.5 LS with just under 90k miles and am being told by a repair show that I need a lower intake manifold issue with leaking coolant. apparently this is common in this size engine. does that sound reasonable? How about a $1700 cost to repair?
