dang took longer then i thought with finding one i like but man am i glad i waited!!!
after the 3rd and final yard i was at they told me they just got an 04 intrepid in so i go check out all the Chrysler section and cant find anything under an 01 with 150k+ miles then i find the 04 walk to the front and to my great surprise the engine and trans is removed with the trans fully unbolted resting on the engine mounts! just that would have made my day but not only that, the car has 33k miles on it and was likly in the yard for a front end collision, air bags popped, bent axel and the front was banged up good... sure enough the fluid is nice and red, much better then any of the other fluids i took out to inspect...
so just posting a quick update and the rebuild will begin soon within the next week after i get the car back on the road.
still debating what i should do with this one after i rebuild the old, do it quickly in next 30 days and get credit for pick n pull, or rebuild the 2nd one to sell on DI.net... decisions... decisions...
Edit: oh and forgot to mention that the shafts on BOTH ends of the old trans have play, when the "new" has play only on passengers side (as it should) just wondering what that actually means internaly about the old? also the harness was cut out so i was unable to grab it what is needed from that harness i thought the only wiring change was the TPS sensor change?
