Aight boys and girls - why should or should I not purchase this newly painted Corolla?

Automagic, 4A-C engine, "new" tires, new lower intake gaskets, new carb, new belts, new fuel filter, new paint, and inspected.

It is autotragic. A 4A-GE with a 6 speed transmission from Japan runs around $2k. I wouldn't do this unless I really didn't want to work on the 4A-C anymore though.

Go for it, it's a rare little shitbox, and finding one that clean is even more rare, even if it doesn't have the 4age. If you do buy it though please promise me you'll keep it clean and stock. There's really no reason to beat on it..

>>18694008
you can get a beams 3sge with a 6 speed trans off of ebay from jdmnewyork for a grand plus shipping. would be a better swap than a 4age desu.

Ok, so the car guy in me says buy it. It's quirky and in great condition for the age. It is not a fast car, but who cares. Please keep it stock and take it out for nice easy drives.

I haven't seen one that looks this good since the 90's and none at all in the last 10 years.

>Hey /o/ so i need your help if youre from California. So my car's registration expired on 12/16/17 and i plan of getting it junked since i crashed it badly. I havent paid for the renewal or PNO (planned non operational) yet because im confused on how to do so. Do i pay for both the renewal and pno fees since its been 65 days late? On the notice i got, it said to check for pno (which i did) and to fill the bottom portion but theres none.

i managed to talk a used car dealer into lowering his sticker price by 23%, and i got him to put a 30-day warranty on the car even though he didn't have to.

so i'm buying a car this week

how do i give her a good wax without spending more than $20? also the headlights are a bit foggy. are there any headlight polishing kits that aren't complete shit?

this has to be bait. no one should be buying a shitbox from a dealer.
>>
>>18692904
For waxing, just get an $8 bottle of california gold and $3 microfiber pack from autozone
For headlights just grab a small bottle of polish while you're there and use the microfibers you used for waxing, then seal it with that same wax
Total cost'll be around $15 not counting whatever you use to wash the car

Hey /o/, I'll be buying an 2003 323ci soon and I'm unsure about how fucked I'll be in terms of repairs. Has anyone here owned one before? It seems the water pump hasn't been changed and that's supposedly a common issue with these cars. Anyone have any experience? Sorry for blogpost but I'm a little worried.

Hi all, I need a little help if you guys can. I have a 2004 automatic Honda Civic coupe. I've had it for about two years now. About a month or two back it started chugging when I try to start it, but when I try again it starts like normal.

At first it was maybe once a week but now it's happening at least twice per day and sometimes I have to try 3 or 4 times before it starts.

A few days ago the check engine light came on and the check from autozone came back with some thermostat code and misfire in #1 coil. Thing is almost a year ago the same #1 coil was bad and I replaced it.

Anybody know what it could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't know much about cars.

If you're losing fuel pressure you probably have a leak. The faster the pressure leaks down the bigger the leak. It could be a fuel line or an injector leaking into the combustion chamber. You could get an oil analysis to check for fuel dilution.
>>
I'm boned. Thanks for the help guys, but my mechanic just checked it out. Says it's a blown head gasket and the only fix is a new engine. He says it's not even worth it since it'll cost around 2k. Sucks
>>
>>18692952
Part out the car and find a new Civic, and comb over prior service records better. Check that oil changes were routinely done, etc. Shit happens.
>>
>>18692952
It doesn't cost 2k to replace a head gasket but I doubt that's even the problem. Check for oil in the coolant. Has it been overheating? It's worth fixing.
>>
>>18693240
Hasn't overheated at all. My mechanic asked the same thing and seemed surprised when I told him it's never overheated. Don't really know how to check for oil in the coolant. I do trust my mechanic pretty well though. He said the engine needs to be replaced because of a busted head gasket.

88 Dakota 3.9. Started having problem with radiator something I've never seen doesn't leak at idle, but when revving the whole radiator expands but doesn't leak then when I shut it off it leaks any ideas I can figure anything out. I'm obviously gonna have to get a new one can't afford it right now. Just wondering if it's gonna have long term effects if I don't replace it now
