History Bought in 2005 not running. brakes rusted and wheels locked. My wife almost cried when I dragged it, wheels skidding off of the trailer.
Bought loaded calipers for all four corners, put them on had to replace a couple of brake lines also. THEN found the pedal cluster was rusty almost frozen. Did the bushing.
Replaced the completely rusted eshaust. Dumped a bunch of Fuel System Cleaner in, charged the battery, and varroom it started immediately. BUT something was not right. Turned out it had 10 of 12 exhaust side cylinder studs broken (3.0L!!) which is probably why it was parked. I had a local shop pull the engine and do a little a possible while replacing the 12 exhaust side studs. After all that, the car was a blast to drive. I ended up needing some cash more than I needed the Car, so I sold it and told my self I get another one soon.
