Purchased for $400 this weekend and towed home.
Started the cleaning process, which involved a holy stinkin' terror of a mouse nest in the glovebox. Since the glovebox is lined in that "suede-ish stuff" I think it's a goner.
I'll post more pics this afternoon and along the way. Heading to Oreillys today to pick up oil & fuel filters and a new Tstat/gasket. I'm thinking that to start off I need a complete shake down of the fuel, oil & cooling systems. What do you guys think? Any tips will be greatly appreciated by this newb Soob guy.
Edited to add:
- 5 speed
- 155,000 on the odometer
- mechanic diagnosed car as needing head gaskets and fuel system cleaning
- doesn't look like coolant mixed with oil just going by the dipstick.
- mechanic said fuel filter had "gummy residue" in it
