This is a run down on the things needed to be done to my 2001 Bonnie and what I have already done. Does anyone else have these same issues with similar year car? If not did I get a lemon and do I need to cut my costs and sell it and look for a lower mileage car? I really love this car but man the total cost out of pocket will exceed 1500 dollars for repairs to get it back into top shape:
Repairs for the Bronze Bullit 2001 Bonnie:
Radiator Leak $579
Rear Shocks: $341
Catalatic Converter: $347
New Windshield from large crack: $150
Air Mix Actuator on drivers side: $?
Fuel Sending Unit: $? (Possibly Do it myself)
Oil Pressure Guage not working Definitely the gauge since it does not fan left and right: $?
LIM Gasket Replacement: $350
Valve Cover Gaskets: $?
Rear Speaker Replacement : $? Can do this myself I hope with your help
Scytek Alarm system redo, so it doesn’t go off every hour or so on it’* own, probably the sensitivity or a short: $?
Slow oil seepage on the oil pan gasket: $?
That’* about it so far these are the things I need to do to the car to get it in top shape in the coming months:
Things I have done so far:
Replaced Oil Sending Unit :$40
Replaced t-stat in the coolant hose (Did this myself) $10 dollars plus my 30 minutes of time
Weld job to stop exhaust leak $197 dollars at midas
Tune UP changed wires and plugs and 2 coils. Misfire is now gone. $150
Window Tint: $130
Professional Detail: $45
Oil Change: $46 Filled with high mileage oil
Car still runs good and strong, but the radiator leak is going to be a real issue unless I get it corrected soon. It only seems to leak when the car is on and up to operating temp, I might try some BAR stop leak first.
