Make it easy on yourself and make sure you get the oil sending unit socket for it and some rtv for the threads to make sure it's doesn't leak. Ten min job.

Should auto zone have it? Or do I need to look elsewhere for it?

I thought about tack welding the bolts holding mine on, but then I thought about it and you can't get to them with the bumper on anyway, it'd be easier to just take the whole bumper & all (which is what they usually do anyway).

Parked it, blocked the wheels, took the front driveshaft out, and now it sits until I get paid thursday meaning I have to drive the cavalier.

Fixed the leaking passenger side ac drain housing by sliding a longer drain tube in. Curing now, hopefully this will put an end to the passenger side kiddy pool..

Drilled a couple bad holes that I had to fill w silicone, also used silicone to keep hose in place in factory opening.

You can drive without the front driveshaft since you have the 1996. It won't roll in park and the VC won't burn up.

Not when my transfer case is already damaged

Well, I could, but not worth it money wise.
