If you need a car that actually drives you'll want to get one with a working transmission. I highly doubt that this car is in good enough shape to justify the actual cost of the car plus the cost of repairs.

How can i make my car go faster.?

The engine is totally seperate in this situation.. the engine may be fine.. but the transmission(gears, makes car move) needs replacing... The transmission needing replacing is not going to affect the engine.. now if the engine was going, it would affect whether or not the vehicle moves.. cause if the engine goes, then the whole vehicle is shot. hope this helps.. (my transmission only needed a fluid change but before i got that done, the gears kept slipping, sometimes wouldnt go into gear and would get "stuck" in between gears. consequently it wouldnt move when i stepped on the gas.. just revv'ed to be crazy)
