Well, I've put the car on the back burner for a while. This guy purchased this particular car with the engine blown up. It had a hole in the side of the block and was formally owned by a buy-here-pay here car lot and sold to two college students.
I think it has a long history of being a complete piece of junk.
This car does so many strange things that I don't know where to start on it.
The latest discovery is that the transmission does not have any reverse gear and won't shift. It runs rich, it won't rev up, the cooling fans won't work, and on top of all of that, there is a mass of wires twisted together under the dash. I think the "Miller Cycle" has something to do with "Miller Time".
Those pick axes are looking better all the time.
