I've not been without a Sable for over 30 yrs. Today, the '04 DOHC I've owned practically from new finally succumbed to the dreaded stripped splines on the torque converter hub for the tranny input shaft at 281K miles and, seeing that it was so rusty, it just didn't justify spending any more money on a major repair. I've kept it on the road far longer than I normally would have with used parts from my local U Pull. Ironically, it was during the drive home from there that the tranny just suddenly failed to hook up. So, called U Pull to come get it as it was fitting since they were my go-to JY. Don't really need another vehicle, but wouldn't mind getting another if a rust-free example presents itself. Until then, I'll continue to frequent this site and offer any help/knowledge I've gained along the way.

Sad to hear it ended that way but I'd say you got good life out of it
