The left head gasket went bad, (driver's side) 17,800 miles.
The transmission started to quiver if I stomped on it in first gear. 20,000 miles.
The transmission then would shake no matter what gear it was in and how hard I pushed the gas. 23,000 miles.
Then it completely gave up around 24,000 miles.
Then (after I personally replaced the tranny) the fuel pump died. 23 miles later.
After I replaced that, the oil pump stopped and therefore, no oil pressure was building up in the engine.
After I replaced that I posted the car for sale.
But on the way home from posting the ad at the newspaper office, the entire electrical system went dead and I was stranded for a few hours. It was the battery which literally just decided to stop producing current.
After I replaced the battery and got home, a person called about the car the next day. I offered to drive the car out to him, but it didn't make it. One of the spark plugs cracked and dropped a little piece of ceramic junk into the cylinder which then got stuck in a valve and snapped it off in a few short miles. So I figured it was destiny that I couldn't sell this car.
I had no more problems (after spending $1500 on the engine) until I tried selling it again. 1 1/2 years later. This time the transmission was acting up by shifting erratically. about 38,000 miles.
I finally agreed to let it go for $400.
