I had been doing my own oil changes but thats about it. Over the last 6 months (or more) i've been getting horrible milage and finally decided to get it checked out at my local mechanic. Normally i go to them just to get rego done (which involves checking the lights and a walk around inspection) this time i got to them check the whole car.
- Possible ECU going (i beleive its the O2 sensor only though (CEL says code 1)
Exhurst leaking, plus tail pipes rusted out
CV joints and shafts leaking (boots missing)
Steering rack leaking
Hatch rusted through (patched up with silver insulation tape, have a spare in garage
low tread on tyres
Engines leaking oil
lights all good
Recommendation was to scrap it.
Tegs been in the family since 1990, (its an 89 model) and the body is looking great, been in some significant accidents, but all good now.
Anyway of that list what should i tackle first?
I have very limited experience working on cars, no access to a workshop or speciality tools. might get some pics over the weekend. At the moment i leave for work whens its dark and get home when its dark.
