North Carolina Thread, ya'll.

I'm in Charlotte, NC. Has anyone gone to any meetups here?

Haven't attended any of the Cars and Coffee's or similar. I'm gonna try to hit up the next one, but not sure if there are any others that are worthwhile. I know there's a local Subaru meet that's supposed to be good.

The car I have recently purchased has been showing signs of rapidly degrading trans fluid, do not get me wrong it still has a pink color albeit more purple, but after the car has gotten up to temp you can see the degraded fluid; it looks a mix between pink and brown. The car has about 110000 miles on it, and the previous owner had the fluid flushed at 60,000 miles. My question is would it be wise to get a flush or simply drop the pan? Regardless I kind of want to change the trans filter. The car is also a 2005 Grand Marquis.

I am just assuming it is a little past due of changing the trans fluid. Any suggestions? This shit is driving me up the wall.
>>
>>17894850
This is actually normal for some cars. My Toyota's transmission fluid is all discolored soon after it's replaced. You might want to see if it's common for your car to do this
>>
>>17894850
Also it's typical to just do a drain and refill and not a fresh. Make sure to measure how much you drained and put that exact amount back in. Definitely get the filter while you're down there

Wrong.

>>17894736

Correct.

We can't get it here in Canada, but PetroCanada gas has the same additive that Chevron puts in their premium/hitest pump gas, so I only fill up with 91 from Petro.

Plus they're always the cleanest/comfiest stations around, and the pumps always work.

>tfw always the same comfy Indian family greeting me when I need snacks
>tfw they even give me free drinks sometimes because I always shop there

The gas is the best you can buy, aside from maybe Shell, but Shell stations in Canada are almost universally haggard dogshit.

is a Toyota Celicia gt-four worth it? it's about 12k and I'm trying to decide to get it from Japan for rally purposes

12k doesn't seem that bad

What do you see yourself daily driving in a year if you want to move on?

I'll probably move onto a Grand Cherokee first (always liked these for some reason) then get something fun as an extra ride because fuck owning only 1 car.

What could be causing this?

Your car knows you're a fagit
>>
>>17894306
Basically a neglected transmission can gain deposits that hold something together, new trans fluid is very acidic and can eat away at these deposits causing issues to show up.
Or that's the theory at least, it's also totally possible your just noticing a slight grinding more than before.
>>
>>17894306
I have an old worn transmission and it grinds real bad when using the correct spec oil.
Got to put in some thicker shit to get it to work right.

What do I need to do to be a "well-qualified buyer"?
Is it just credit score? Credit score + down payment?
I saw some financial blogs say to be "well-qualified" you have to have successfully financed a car before.
I don't have bad credit, just a short history. My score is sitting at a 710 and I'm gonna put down half.

I paid cash for my first shitbox so I've never done this before.

>put down half
That will help significantly. Get the loan through your bank and it should be a < 4% interest rate. Don't take anything higher than 8%. The dealer jockey will quote you payments and not show the interest rate. They usually use 20% which is outrageous to finance anything on.
>>
Use Craigslist you god damn idiot, having half the asking price of a dealer shitbox that was likely bought off Craigslist anyway is going to be half that asking price so you can pay in cash. Use your brain or I'll show you pain
>>
>>17894091

800+ credit score
