Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

As Phil and Ed said "Yep"

But since your at it anyway, Why not make a minor performance upgrade, By putting in a tranny with a slightly more performance oriented gear ratio from a 90-93 convertible? :) (You will lose 1-2 MPG +/- :( )

I jumped on "CAR-PART.COM" (Which I consider the greatest resource that the internet has yet to provide :D )(Don't Forget the "-" {DASH} in the middle or you end up at A JC WHITNEY Site :-P :-P ) and I found 2 in California. 1) at Concord auto dismantlers in Concord Ca. (1-925-685-7706) and #2) at Standard Auto Recycling in Chula Vista Ca. 1 -619-426-1166. This is not an endorsement of either organization, I Just thought I could do a little leg work for you.

Good Luck, Hope your back on the road soon,Jonathan

He'll probably go about 3 miles to the Pick A Part on 6th.
Or, he could head to an Ecology in Fontana.
Southern California has some pretty decent yards.

The nearest one you mentioned was a 250 mile round trip.
The other? Almost 1,000 miles.
California is a big place. It might not get as hot as North Florida :roll: but there are plenty of Metros in the yards.
If he gets a Metro tranny, he'll probably still have his 4.10, like stock.
We have a 4.39 in our white '89:

because the previous owner tried a 3.79 and shredded it

and 5th gear.
:shock: :shock: :shock:
So your advice to try a 4.39 is pretty good.
I'm thinking this guy is a 'one shot' fellow, who won't be posting much on Teamswift.
Maybe he isn't thinking as far ahead as you.

Good Point Phil and Ed, on the potential one post thought, But with a little encouragement, and a bite from the performance "BUG" we may have another convert over to the "DARK SIDE" :lol: :lol: This is how it starts. :) :)

You are right.
Knowing Highland like I do, it would certainly be a surprise.

soo I coukd get a geo trans. Sorry guys I'm not that smart at this 4.39 ratio. One of those gears it's a small one it says 1 and 3 a tooth of the gears that blew out of my trans. I want the same acceleration what would you doo phill_ ed.

By going to the 4.39 final drive ratio(which I believe were found only in the 5Speed Convertibles.) You will pick up a slight bump in acceleration over the (Numerically) Lower stock ratio.This will cause a slightly lower top speed (3-4 MPH) and slightly higher Gas consumption due to Higher RPM's (revs) at highway speed (I'd Estimate 1-2 mpg), But that little extra bump in acceleration from the stoplight, and its incumbent "grin factor" makes it a worthy upgrade at little or no increased cost over what you would pay for a stock GTI unit or even A stock regular 5peed Metro unit. I hope this Helps. Best wishes,Jonathan

The 4.39 is in all the 1.0 cars that had 13'' tires. That means any 95-01 3 cyl Metro plus the verts.

Hi bro! Were you able to fix this problem? What trans did fit your car? I'm also having this same problem, my trans also blew out yesterday.
