My buddies car that is. He has a 95 buick regal with a 3800 engine and a 4t60-e tranny in it. He lost 3rd gear in the tranny and drove it at 70 mph unitl it broke a rod in the motor, then he called me. I found a junkyard motor with 80,000 miles on it and put gaskets in it. Then with the tranny I rebuilt it with the help of my dad. It is the first automatic I have ever been into, except for a filter change. I did most of the work with dad supervising, and it works better that a brand new one! And no oil leaks to boot! I'm so pumped right now! WoooooooHoooooo!
