Whats Wrong: Part 3 - The Transmission

So first of all I don't think this is a problem but it may be one.  Actually it is more than 1 issue.  The first is that I broke the shifter knob right off going into reverse.  So reverse is hard to get into place.  Also when I shift down to 2nd gear grinds a tiny bit.  I don't know if these are problems at all.  It just a couple of concerns that I have about it.

Whats Wrong: Part 2

So the next item that I have wrong is that I am losing coolant.  I put it in and like a week later it is all gone.  At first I thought it might just be a leak but there is never anything under the car after it has been sitting.  I did some research and I found out that it could possibly be the heater core.  So I think that is what I am going to try to replace for the coolant problem.

Whats wrong: Part 1

So over the next couple of days or so I am going to go over what is wrong with the car.  Then at the end I am going to add poll and ask what I should work on first.  So the first problem that I have is that there is a major grinding in the right front.  It started with the car pulling majorly to the right.  I was going to get the alignment checked but the car is so low to the ground and I couldn't find anyone with a lift that could lift my car so I didn't get one.  After about a couple of months it started grinding so I had to go get a loan to buy a used car.  At this point I think it may need a CV shaft rebuild kit.  Which isn't that hard to do.  Plus all the work that I will be doing to the car I will be doing it myself.

The start of it all.

So I have a 1989 Honda CRX and I am not entirely sure on what to do with it.  There are many things that are wrong with it.  I want to get it back on the road soon but I figured it would be fun to have people vote on what to do next.
