When I was checking it out, the PO had to jump start the car, battery flat dead.

It had a codes for Shift solenoid S2 and DEM along with a long list of other DTCs. The drive home was something else, had to kick in in neutral to stop, did not have much power.

Got it home shut it off, battery still flat dead (8.9V) after 40 miles drive. Replaced the battery, cleared codes, ran it around neighborhood. So far the Shift solenoid S2 and DEM have not come back and it appears to be shifting OK. Could not really work the transmission, engine issues to work out, not much power.

More then likely I got a lot of deferred maintenance and repairs to work through. It is wet and chilly here now. I'll wait until next week when the sun is to come out and the temperature gets up in the 70s. Then I'll take it's vital statistics and work out a plan of attack.
Good deal, keep us up to date!

Just a long running joke about used oil. I'd never reuse any fluid.

Convert it into Diesel fuel or Heating oil.
