Got minimal information from the guy. He didn't really seem to know about the truck itself. He does know what's wrong with it. There's some rust in the rear left wheel well, not sure how bad it is, haven't seen it yet. The front wheels in the 4 wheel drive are not engaging. He had the engine replaced last winter, and the 4 wheel drive stopped working after that. He thinks it's the same engine. (Doesn't know much about the vehicle at all.)
Also the AC compressor needs to be put back in, why would it be taken out in the first place.
How much would the two major problems (AC and 4wd) approx cost to fix?

    Really; he doesn't know and you don't know, and we don't know anything about it. Either take it to someone to look it over to be sure or walk away.

    Looking at the pictures it looked pretty clean. The engine is the only thing I don't know about. He said it was the same engine, but I would need to look at it to be sure. I've had 2 sonomas, I like the truck. Assuming the engine is the same, just a few thousand miles less, I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth my time and money to get it and fix it or not.

    Without knowing more and inspecting the work that has been done, and I think you said 'He thinks it's the same engine'. A lot of unknowns need to be resolved before any advice on your questions. Sorry, just being honest.
