They are pretty awesome. Gave us a fuel pump because it didnt fix the issue and was too much of a pain to remove. They even dropped rings and pistons into the car, out of warranty, to fix an oil burning issue on their dime. They have gone way above expectations.



I wont own an auto. My girlfriend doesnt know how to drive a manaul so thats one thing that needs to be worked on! Ha!

Sounds like a job for the little sentra. Do it every day for a week or two and you won't even think about it anymore. I remember before I sold my accord I must have taught 5 or 6 people how to drive stick in it.

She is afraid to hurt the truck. She doesn't believe me she can't do anything to it I haven't. That ceramic puck clutch is not something to learn on so Sentra it is!

I won't own an automatic trans for a more practical reason.

There have been a couple of times in the past where I was WAY off-road, I mean twenty or more miles from the main highway, and even farther to the nearest town. Starter goes out maybe. You can still push-start it. Battery goes dead. Same thing. With an automatic, you might end up having to walk out a long way.

I had this old Datsun truck once, mid-70s and the clutch went out off road. I was able to speed shift it back to the main highway without grinding gears, and once I reached the highway I just took the freeway home. Speed shifting is a skill, too. It really is. You have to know the EXACT point to throw the gear shift without grinding the gears. Starting out from first is the hardest, of course...but it can be done. Once you get into second, you are home free. More or less. Your synchros will suffer, of course.

I had that happen once in my honda while I was at the grocery store. The slave cylinder seal blew out and the clutch went to the floor. I had to crank the starter with it in 2nd then gently shift into 3rd once I got it going fast enough. Luckily it was late at night so there wasn't much traffic to contend with.

Fun fact: some old torqueflite transmissions (possibly including a '67 plymouth) had a second transmission pump driven by the output shaft and you actually could push start them. The main reason you can't push start an automatic is because there is no way to achieve a connection between the engine and the wheels without the pump spinning. No hydraulic pressure means it can't apply any of the clutches or bands. An automatic transmission is effectively in neutral without the engine running. I always bring a fully charged jumper box with me when I go out in the woods. That's way less work if you do end up with a dead battery.

I wouldn't want a small 4 cylinder truck or car with an auto, though. I can only imagine how much more of a dog this thing would be if it had a slushbox. And it's a lot more fun.

I have TWO very large tarps for this trip. I think one is 20x30 and the other 16x20, I believe. I bring a small ladder because this makes it easier to get the tarps up higher, tied to trees. We can also use the paint extension pole, which is really strong and can lock out anywhere up to sixteen feet high.

Looks like there will be NO fire restrictions over this trip. Fire danger rating, as of June 12 is still 'LOW'.

Being in the woods is cool. Sleeping in a tent sucks! I never get any decent sleep in a tent. Always uncomfortable and cold and damp. Bleh. Lol! I like fire and fire pits but I always feel like



I'm a little over an hour south of Cottage Grove. That adds another 70ish miles to the drive for me. It's at leastr 4 hours to Estacada for me. It's over 170 miles just to Portland from here!



Still need to see what I've got going that weekend since the girlfriend has a birthday right around there. Not sure what she has planned.
