Frame dropped

Asked by Apr 29, 2017 at 11:13 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Lumina 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been using a 1997 Lumina on a mail route. The body has 230,000 on it but the motor only has 150,000 and the transmission has 25,000. On Monday while I was on the mail route I lost steering. After having it towed to the garage I have been told that the frame actually dropped down and the steering column shaft separated from the coupling. Is this an expensive fix or should I just park it and use the motor and transmission later if needed?

if the frame is rusted that bad and can't be repaired, then I'd find another vehicle. A used motor and trans isn't worth much to others, more to you if you can find another Lumina to drive and if you have room to store them as spares.
