Re: '96 Crown Victoria LX, $900, been sitting 8 months
I'm buying it.
The mechanic said I have what amounts to a very mild oil leak. He said it could be the valve covers, oil pan, or rear main seal. Claims it is minor enough to leave alone provided I keep topping off the oil.
He also said there was "Transmission Pan seepage." Again, minor, recommended waiting on repair until it actually gets bad.
The only other things the car needs are new headlight assemblies (left and right) and tires. The lights were damaged in a nasty hail storm last summer. Strangely enough though, there is only one dent in the body from that storm.
The front tires have very little tread left, and the rears have studs in them (lol).
There's no way in hell I could do better for $900.
That balljoint? NOTHING wrong. No idea what the hell the owner was talking about.
