Ok, so here'* the story. I found this car through Craigslist and bought it even though it had been neglected. The PO hadn't changed the oil for 2 years. The car was overheating due to a bad cooling fan relay and gunky coolant. It was running rough, stalling, overheating and backfiring through the exhaust when I bough it.
Since I've had the car, little over a week, I've done an engine flush, added new oil, drove the car 100 miles, changed the oil again, new coolant, new platinum plugs and new wires, replaced the cooling fan relay, ripped off the muffler which was in pieces and rattling around...
So, I've got the car to where it no longer overheats and runs pretty decent now. Every little thing I do gives it a pretty noticeable improvement. I added some Seafoam to the gas tank to clean the fuel system.
The car is a daily driver now, and drives and shifts great. Only problem I'm having are the intermittent rough running and hesitation.
The car is in pretty decent shape, body is good and it shifts very nicely for it'* age. 121k on the odometer.
I was wondering if there is anything I can do to improve things? I don't want to end up stranded somewhere. I bought the car for 300.00 full well knowing what it needed, and I'm willing to do the work. I've fallen madly in love and want to get this relationship right for the long haul!
