Just junk the damn thing already, you are going to nickel and dime that thing and it is never going to recover..

Smooth move, you migh be able to fix it with some metal epoxy, keep in mind that this will only temporarily fix the external problems. There may be internal damage that you are unaware of. Try using some JB Weld on it, should patch it right up.Best of Luck!

Yea, you'll need a new transmission. Replace the mounts or it'll do it again.

i own a repair shop and you,ll have to replace the transmission in it for one thing if the casing busted on it,that's the only way to fix that one,if you can find a good transmission for it that would be the best way to repair it,and the cheapest also,but by the time you get this one back on the road its going to cost you some money ,good luck hope this helps.

Shoulda fixed the mounts before. Something like this was bound to happen when you tempt fate.

You're looking at far more then it would cost to buy a newer car. Just buy a newer car. You obviously didn't take care of this one anyway.
