V8 Info


I have a '90 V8 that was manufactured in june of '90.

First thing check the date of manufacture in the
driver's door.  The later in the build cycle the better....

- Does it surge when you accelerate moderately ?

- Are the front disc's original UFO's ?

- Are there any hydraulic leaks ?  Steering Rack, P/S pump....

- Timing Belt, should change it at 60k, but car is 8 years old.
  I'd do it ASAP to be safe.  Cost if it breaks $5-6k....
- Price,  $8-11k or so, depending condition and mileage.

- Maintenance records,  If your uncle has all the records, scour through
  them.  There is probably a pile of receipts......  If there isn't I
  would be concerned.
Todd,  Feel free to call or e-mail directly.....

Included for comical relief :-)       Edmunds say's....
