It seems as if both Brett and Phil are pretty right on, but I wouldn't be
concerned about buying the car. If these are the only problems that it has,
you are doing good, and it is probably a good buy. They are all relatively
inexpensive, easy repairs. If the car runs and looks like it has been take
care of, then I wouldnt worry at all. These engines are bulletproof.
Personally I wouldn't even bother fixing the trip computer; it isn't even
As for that stinking auxilary cooling system, I have had it fall off twice
now (its a small electric piece), and my mechanic advised me just to leave
it off. It cost around $150 each time to replace. He just suggested
letting the engine cool at idle for a minute or so before shutting off.
Also, where is the car? If it is someplace in Arizona, or a desert climate
where it gets very hot, then it could be a problem if adequate cool down
time was not alloted.
I hope all goes well.
