You might want to pay attention to the drips and take a look at the gaskets especially when having work done. Here’s my experience so far:

- the oil transmission cooler lines were dripping at the radiator
- the heater hose was dripping at the fire wall
- the a/c hose was also dripping from the firewall ( a know problem I’m told).
- the power steering line to the pump was dripping. New pump & hoses.
- the rack and pinion seals were dripping. A new Rack & Pinion.
- the oil pan gasket started to show signs of seepage. Drop it, clean it and change the gasket.
- time for scheduled maintenance on the transmission pan that showed signs of seepage. I recommend Mike in AZ Oil Pan when you do this.
- time for scheduled maintenance on the differential cover that showed signs of seepage. I recommend Mike in AZ Differential Cover when you do this.


Yes, it’s been quite an experience $$$$.

Strange indeed. I bought the wrong one at 50k.
Buyer beware. Refrigerant leak when the system was serviced
and refilled. All the leaks and drips from original parts.
First owner for 48k, looks to be meticulously cared for.
2nd owner apparantly a kid with no automotive skills who tried to make it into
a Hot Rod. I think that says it all.
Anyway, everything is new and I still have a sense of humor.
Plus, I'm still married.
