Most recently I've had to replace the valve cover gasket, pretty much the entire front suspension, and a few other things. But now the cats are bad/clogged... of course they're built into the manifolds and cost $300+ a piece just for the parts. I'm debating if it's even worth my time - which would suck if it's not considering how much money I've just put into the thing replacing every component in the front suspension.
I don't know dude, for a 11-year old car with 170k on it, that doesn't sound all that bad to me. Now that you've replaced all that stuff you may have another 100k care free miles.....
$1,000 a year for maintenance or $5,000 a year for payments......
