Need Help in Ohio

I don't know how may of you rodders live up here in the great northeast of Ohio, but if you do, I am seeking some help.

This morning was a balmy 12 degrees, and there is about 6 inches of snow on the ground. My garage door is broke in the "almost" closed position. I don't think its going to get any warmer for a time.

The Intrepid I drive is stuck in "failsafe" (2nd gear "Limp Home Mode"), and there are a couple of adjustments I need to check, and I may have to do a repair which involves dropping the tranny pan (not the WHOLE thing). Is there anybody nearby that would be willing to lend a warm garage for a weekend day or two? This thing is driving me nuts not being able to go much faster than 35-40mph, and I think I can get it fixed without too much fuss. I have the tools and manpower, but this weather is for *****!

If its something you can do, please PM me. I would also "barter" or offer you something for your trouble.

I can't help you on that one...would putting a tarp over the car with some halogen lights underneath work to take the chill off? Hope you get something figured out...

bad trans, bad-bad trans....smack!!

My garage is cold as ice, and full up. Are you still putting your trans in 4th gear? My Mini van is stuck in safe mode but as long as I put the trans in 3rd gear I'm fine around town. Just a thought, something tells me chrysler has a problem they arn't telling the public about. Whats this safe mode BS, if it can tell me that it can tell me whats wrong too!!!


Rat Rods Rule!
