yes , that sounds like a good idea. lucky to have only paid 2000 for it but the bad thing is only had it for 2 wks. and bought it from an individual. I but I really appreciate you thoughts amd help on tkis matter. your great ! Will give you a great rstinh ! thank you ! Betsy
this car was bought from a mechanic shop in Greensboro Probably left due to a unpaid bill. The mechanic said he had put a new head cylinder , radiator and hoses a water pump , the tires are like new , body good . interiot good. My question is they are talking about a used motor from Jspan where they have to change them every 20,000 miles on them . I don't have an estimate yet but with this being a 1994, is it worth the cost of replacing this motor. ? Im just guessing, you are the expert , but Im guessing about 2000 to pay for all repairs minimum. I guess it'd be like a new one. I looked on line and another one would be about the same 2000. I do realy thank you for opinion. Betsy
One thing bothers me. He put a new head on it and it's probably bad now. Now you could have $4,000 in a 94 and the same mechanic is going to so called fix on it some more. What's the next cost he needs to work you a deal. He should have some warranty of some king since he repaired it the first time. It's your call be a lot of considering needs to be thought of.
That was what I thought , he is a mechanic and did all these repairs . I figure he should at least do the labor, which will be what , about 1/2 the cost. which eould make alot of difference. I thought Toyota 's lasted for about 250 - 300,000 miles on the motor. when it was towed in the man in Morganton said the oil level was right. He said right off it'd need a new engine. If He fixes it there it will be full price. A high end shop with high end prices I imagine.
I wish I didn't know them eithet believe me. i read the reviews. sound like they're capible of being nasty. I'll find out tomorrow if they're willing to do the right thing.I have doubts. But I'll post it when I find out. You're really great. I enjoyed conversating with you ! Have a great night ! Thanks so much !! Betsy
