Something followed me home. The distributor cap and rotor must have been the ticket. It started right up, and drove with no issues. It definitely isn't as quick as my zj, but I think once I do some work, it will improve. Repair records indicate: rebuilt transmission and t case, rear drive shaft yoke @40k miles ago; ball joints, rebuilt rear brakes and lines, master cylinder, rear wheel bearings, brake flush, new radiator @6 months ago. And of course dist cap and rotor Monday.
After that I replaced the driver's inside and outside door handles.
Then the cleaning began.
Needless to say, I'll be cleaning for weeks. Going to rent a carpet cleaner. May get new carpet. Not sure it's worth it.
Looks like the intake is leaking oil out the front. Was also very low on oil.
Also found this:
Went ahead and replaced cap with new. Do you think this is a combo of dex and green? Definitely will need a very thorough flush. Maybe a professional should do it?
Not since my 1970 Dodge d100 sweptline when I was 16, have I had a vehicle with this must rust. Honestly not sure what to do about it.
Overall, I'm hoping $2500 was a good price for a dependable vehicle after a little more elbow grease.
