new to the group

Hi all, I just found this site a week ago- I wish I had known about it last year. I've got a 95 intrepid3.3L that just turned over 210k miles, and I've found myself milking it along lately. I'm not sure if its time to chuck it and start over, but since the darned thing cost me so much when I bought it(it was my first new car) I swore I would drive it til it needed horses to get out of the driveway.

Some stuff that I see in the forums I have consistent problems with- the A/C has NEVER worked right, and I'm considering joining the tierod of the month club. But I've been pretty lucky with the tranny- tho now that I know how trouble prone they are I'm sure thats on my cars to do list.

Anyway just wanted to introduce myself- I'm a recently converted aircraft mechanic-I fixed airplanes for 20 years, last week I got my first job wrenching cars(who'da thunk it). I think I stayed cleaner working on jets- I sure got paid better(lol).

gebuh- who's gonna have to work her way up to those incredibly long sig files- but this is a start

Hi there!
The tranny problems are much more common with the 3.5L engine, so with a 3.3L you should be OK, just remember to change out the tranny fluid every once in a while! Welcome to the boards.
