A dozen or more years ago, I was bringing one of my young kids back from a peewee baseball game and there was a beautiful Ford Aerostar sitting along side the road with a "For Sale" sign on it. We had three kids, so a vehicle like that always catches my attention. I stopped and looked at it and it was beautiful, inside and out. I called the guy up and he said there was nothing wrong with it....except the tranny was shot. He wanted $700, I got him down to $400 and for that price he even delivered it to my house. The guy was a well-known mechanic in the area. I was just about ready to yank out the tranny and tear into it when I noticed the pan gasket was leaking. Just on a hunch, I put in a new tranny filter and gasket, filled it up with fluid and put another 100K miles on it without having any tranny problems. My father-in-law asked me if I felt bad about ripping off the previous owner. I told him "Nope, he was a mechanic and should have known better."
