This will be my first post, just joined yesterday, been lurking for a couple of weeks though. Anyways I just last Friday picked up a 2001 LS V8. FOR $300!!!! Body is absolutely mint, interior is near perfect with the exception of the lower drivers seat,and the armrest. The car has 134,000 on it. He was told it needed a motor by the mechanics, so he parked it. I did my research on the symptoms it was having, and went back to look at the car the next day. Reached to the backside of the intake manifold and found the large plug on the Backside was missing.
