Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Chevy Astro Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles
My mother still owes $3500 on this P.O.S. And I think it is unfixable. But I wanted to check with you guys for any ideas you might have.
The block is cracked at the point where the starter is mounted. This allows the starter to shift just enough to make a heck of a racket, break off flywheel teeth, shatter the starter gear shroud/etc. We have had 3 starters replaced, one flywheel and now we discovered the crack.
I have read where this has become a known design flaw and I wonder if she has any recourse to just having the thing hauled off and keep paying for a car she no longer has.
