With most of these cars being purchased with high miles and multiple owners, you never know what you will find when you get a chance to take a good look at it at home. Heres what I found. My test drive found a slipping trans when you first start to go from a stop. When I brought that up to the female owner, she said "it never failed to get going once it revs up a little". The issue ended up being 3 quarts low on trans fluid and the reason for that was some nit wit put in a newer radiator at some point and never put thread sealant or Teflon tap on the NPT trans line fitting into the rad. What a oily mess below and behind the fittings. She claimed she recently put new tires on the car and they did infact look pretty good but once I got up to high way speed, the vibration was way more than I could handle for the 8 hour trip home. So a stop at Walmart for a balancing job found the tires were never balanced! Basicaly, she destroyed the "good" tires. I just ordered 4 new ones. She said she just had new brakes put on the front and yup, they still looked new. But once I got into Atlanta traffic, I quickly realized the rear pads were metal on metal on one side! To add to that, After I put in all new upper control arms to fix the bump clunking going on, the clunking was still pronounced on the right side. A closer look at the "new brake/rotor job" she told me about revealed a brake caliper that was dam near ready to fall off! Apparently the "mechanic" forgot to turn the caliper bracket screws in all the way, let alone tighten them. I have to say, what REALLY made this the most memorable used car purchase Iv ever had in my 44 year driving career is when I got the car home and went threw it. I found her last regy card...... To put this into perspective, the woman looked like she may have done time as a Line backer for the Florida Gators with the wide shoulders and brush cut hair. Then there was this older woman she was hanging with...... Then it all came together when I saw what her FL license plate said. Hey, I can't make this S*** up if I tried!
