I am considering buying my friends 95 2.3 manual with 190xxx. What are some issues I should look out for or expect.
There is already one issue...no dash lights and apparently can't smog because OBDII can't be read...
Hi. Ask your friend if you could buy it certified (pass inspection including emissions). Maybe if you agree on a price for the truck but subtract what it costs to pass. Otherwise unless it is really cheap you might want to look around. It would make a difference if your friend has had it a long time and has kept records of repairs, maintenance,etc.
