I have not had fluid flushes for car at any point. My error. Now my Mazda technician is blaming that on the following:
slight transmission leak (qt low)
leaking oil gasket (slight)
and due to age clutch out soon, possible struts/suspension issues?
I love this car, just havent really taken the best preventative care. Only oil change each 3k miles.
So far I have only had to replace tires, batter, spark plugs/wires hoses, etc.
I would like to keep it so-
he estimated 1500 transmission, 900 oil gasket, 575 fluid drain/flush
So at $3,000 with transmission repaired and replaced fluids is this a gamble worth taking?
If this is a good option, then is there any other maintenance issues I should take care of as well?
I really would like to drive this car another 3-4 years, I normally have averaged less than 10K per year.
Its either sell asap while its driving, or. Spend money on repairs to keep it- I just don't know if its cost effective?
