Following up on some items:

I ended up forking over the $ and getting the trans rebuilt back in 2017. No problems since then. I asked about which fluid they used the rebuilder said Dexron 3.

Also after the deer hit the car went to Copley Auto and Collision and got put back together.

The mileage is starting to creep down I'm thinking it might be time for a new O2 sensor.

Noticed a heat shield was loose so went to fixing it last night. Had to replace a plastic river that holds part of the heat shield. While under there I noticed a crack in the exhaust pipe at the Y. Will fix this weekend

well it is aluminized pipe, but it has only been in the salt for about a month earlier this year. The metal still feels firm and does not yield to hammer tapping. We'll see once it gets welded how thin it is.

New rotors on all four corners and new rear pads. Pads were almost 10 years old but lifetime warranty got new ones no charge.

Also tightened the braces from the strut tower to the core support. Car has been creaking on low speed corners and internet says that is it
