I believe it depends on what state you reside, but if you legally haven't finished the contract to pay for the car and have sold the motor and transmission out of it.. you are responsible for the cost. They will sell the car, putting in a motor and transmission and auction it off to the highest bidder. Even if that is not what is left owed on the car. You will be legally responsible for the rest due. Whatever that amount is. It does depend on your state though I would check with your local courthouse. When you purchase a vehicle and obtain a title loan, you are obligated under the terms of the agreement to keep the vehicle in running condition. If you remove parts from the vehicle you can be held responsible for the full price of the vehicle and it is conceivable that the courts may impose criminal charges for your actions. They cannot impose "criminnal charges" on you for removing the transmission and motor.It is contract law not criminal law which governs this.

That really depends on how you treat your vehicle. Type of vehicle, size of motor, FWD RWD. Most last 50,000 miles. One way to tell if they have gone bad is a loud clunk sound when you accelerate hard. That is the engine jumping and hitting the sides of the motor mount.

Why does your 98 Ford Contour SE Sport's automatic transmission shift very hard between first and second gears when it never used to do this?

The transmission is a 4 speed computer controlled model. If your transmission starts shifting erratic or not at all, then make sure you or a shop run a scanner on the vehicle. You want to see if you have a sensor that has gone bad, causing your problems. The vehicle speed and transmission range sensors like to go bad on vehicles with these transmissions in them.

Jeep puts tags on the transmission. It is usually mounted so that one can see it from under the vehicle. Not alwayas easy to find though. If the tag is gone or you cant find it then just Google the info. That is how I usually find things. Just enter something like 1987 Jeep Cherokee Transmission types. Good luck.

How late on payments do you have to be before your car can be repoed in Kentucky?

One day. Typically it takes the lender a week or more, usually a month before they send out the order of repossession. If you are trying to figure out the float on how long it is safe to be delinquent, don't bother. Once you have gone into repossession, the lender can still have your vehicle picked up, even if you pay current. You breached a contract, the penalty of that is the surrender of the secured property, the car. Do what you have to to pay the note, or be honorable and surrender the vehicle.


What is the fastest a car has gone in reverse?

The Nissan Leaf is the fastest car in reverse. For safety purposes, a stock Nissan Leaf is electronically limited in how fast it can go in reverse. With the limit removed, it has gone about 55 miles/hour in reverse and it set the world record for fastest car in reverse. Most cars are physically limited in how fast they can go in reverse by the transmission, as reverse is roughly equivalent to first gear. The Nissan Leaf has no transmission, instead it has a motor that can put out high torque over a wide range of speeds, making a transmission unnecessary.

Where do you check the automatic transmission fluid on 1998 Isuzu Rodeo?

I had the same questions, I contacted Izuzu and it is not servicable by you and I. It has to be checked by the service center by raising the vehicle and removing the bolts as in replacing the transmission fluid. This was on the 97-99's. They have gone back to dipsticks but unfortunately we are stuck with the service center. YES you can do it!! Be careful not to overfill but do as follows to check the fluid. As you don

Is Subaru redoing their engine and transmission?

The current generation FA and FB motors are here to stay, and the CVT is becoming the standard in almost all of Subaru's vehicles. Only the STI uses the older generation EJ motor and is only available in a Manual Transmission. These have been tweaked here and there but they're overall relatively identical in design. The boxer motor has only gone through 5 major changes in it's lifetime since 1971.


How do I know if there is a problem with my car's automatic transmission fluid?

You want to make sure that the transmission isn't making any suspicious noises. That could be a sign either your transmission or transmission fluid has gone bad. Also, the transmission fluid should not be an odd color: it should be the color it was when it was replaced.
