Welcome oldschool!

this car is simple to maintain, sometimes tedious, but easy to do.

auto or stick?

your car is compatible with any 85-94 of the same body style for suspension, trans, and body. the sedan and 3door have the same fender, hood, frontend as the wagon.

your car if not turbo is an SPFI engine, plug and play from any back to 88

If the rear main is not leaking, you could let it go, but if you service it, be meticulus with the install, and so some searching about rear main seal, as a bad installation can cause it to leak or pop out. There may be a groove on the crank, but you can set the seal somewhwere past it. Do not bottom out the seal, it should be flush with the crankcase.

beware the rust, it likes to form in the rear rocker sills behind the mudflaps, behind the rear of the front fenders, and the framerails under the font, and the rear quarters. if you powerwash the car, open the doors and spray into the fender from the front door, and spray out the bottom of the doors to clean the little drain holes and dirt from the rubber seal.

I wish you another 100,000 miles!
