There seems to be a small oil leak. It ahd been sitting for a week and there was only a few drops under the car, she said it needs oil added a litle here and there. I didn't pin point where it was coming from, but from what I've read here, this is nothing new and nothing to not buy this because of.
The hood doesn't stay locked down, just lever that locks in is holding it. I'll try adjusting the levelers.
I paid $1500. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated

You guys are making me feel good about this. I'm selling my gas loving 99 explorer. I like the truck, but with gas prices the way they are, I'm making the switch. Besides, i think subbies are more my speed and mentality. Can't wait to get a 5-speed again!

Minor oil leak is no big thing. Would suggest you have the timing belt replaced and, while the front end is opened up, replace the crank & cam seals, have the oil pump re-sealed and even replace the water pump. You'd probably be good for another 100k miles.
The clutch is most likely okay. Just pay attention to it for the next few months and see what you think. Car sounds like it's be worth a new clutch--is it's even necessary.
Hood latch should be no big thing--WD40, lubrication, maybe adjustment, maybe new cable. Worth it.
Overall sounds like a good deal.
Welcome to the board, you'll find a lot of helpful souls here. And best of luck!
