the work it needs:
a good cleaning, as you can see
a new waterpump, this one leaks.. autozone has one for $20, and my dad said the dealer time is 1hr on it..so it cant be bad..
plugs wires.... has some jerking going into overdrive

it actually only has 169,000 on it, and its been 2,000 miles since a full transmisson rebuild..it had been sitting for the last 3 years, and has 04 tabs

i think this was a great scoop..

Car looks good.

You'll wish it was the 3.1L at some point though. Fixing stuff on that motor is a nightmare and 90% of all the ones I see in the yard unwrecked are because of the motor. The one in the yard by me that I pulled the transmission from what a pain in the ***. Look for the coil pack and you'll see my point.

Nice car though. parents had a 3.1 euro that was a great car. Friends with the 3.4 euro just junked it for nickel and diming them.
