But for now runs good I might consider geg another engine for the truck but for now is there any special services I have to do to this truck ?? Its my first car im new into this
I wouldn't worry about getting another engine if there is no problem with the one you have. You never know what kind of problems you may run into, and you know the problems you already have. My suggestion would be to talk to your uncle and see when the last time the vehicle had a routine tune-up. If it has been a while then do it! Maintenance is one of the most important parts of keeping a good running vehicle that will last a long time. Changing spark plugs, wires, air filter, oil, transmission fluid and filter. Should keep her purring like a kitten. Also find out when the last time the timing belt has been changed and fuel filter and brakes. and get a Haynes Manual. They sell them at most auto parts stores. It goes over a complete tear down and rebuild and comes in very handy if you dont know how to do things to a vehicle. step by step instructions and pictures that covers EVERYTHING!!!
