$300 for the engine and $600 for the install. Such a deal. The chain repair shop I spoke with wanted $2,700 to do the swap. Sigh. I wish I had found this engine before I bought the other Camaro but...such is life.
I dropped the car off at the chain repair shop and had them do a diagnostic on it and for $60 they told me it might be a bad O2 sensor, bad wiring or a failing powertrain control module (PCM); in other words the car's computer. They also gave me a repair estimate of just under $2,000 but that also included struts, shocks, tires and an passenger side outer tie rod. Not sure what I'm going to do about the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light; I can't sell this car for what I want for it with that thing on. Grrr. Needless to say I've got a lot of work to do if I'm going to sell the "old Camaro" for anywhere want we want to.
Today I noticed dark stains on my driveway where out "new Camaro" (the one on the right) was sitting. It would appear that either the power steering pump or the lines for the pump are leaking. I should expect nothing less from one twenty one going on twenty two year old car. When you have two of them I should expect nothing less than double the trouble.
