No, i didn't get a 91, but my buddy did, and he is having issues. He drove it to school the other day, and when he got in to it after words, he put it into reverse, and nothing. So he fiddled around with it, shut the car off, turned it on again, nothing. Then put it in drive, and it went forward and he put it in reverse and it went. This happened to him twice. Is the transmission shot, or is there something we can do to fix it for under $50, like a Trans Tune, fluid and filter change with Lucas Trans additive, would that help, or are the clutches shot? It is a white 91 LE (i think), red cloth, a few other options. If it is shot, he can give it back to his cousin (who he bought it from) and just go and get something else, and be out the oil, filter, wipers and insurance he put into it, about $100. Thanks for all the help.

good chance that something like a servo is just gummed up...needs to run a can of trans tune, have the trans flushed, and probably wouldn't hurt to add lucas trans fix.

He'd be better off with the tranny fixes on the Bonnie.

LOL, he gave the car back to his cousin and bought a F*&$ Probe, that now needs more money than the bonne did and is worse in most ways.... :angry7:
