I bought this 1998 Trans sport van this January! It had some water damage before and had to have a motor put in it before I got it. I had it 4 months and it had to have another motor put in it! The car lot I got it from filled it with stop leak and it blowed a head. Then I had to put a radiator anh most recently I had to flush the heater core. That was a job! Way to much wireind and electronics...
This is one of the BEST vehicles I have ever owned! just watch out for that intake manifold leak!
