New to me 1998 S70 T5M in The Green Mountain State (VT)

Post by VTs70T5M » Tue May 28, 2019 7:15 pm

New to the forums here. Live in southern VT and just found a 98 t5m from boston for $1500. Was one owner car titled in 98 by 50 year old woman who kept til late 2018. Just hit 198k, ive had about 2 weeks now amd have already done quite a bit. New engine oil, gear oil, plugs, wires, front rotors and pads, new ipd tcv, new silicone vacuum lines, new silicone turbo hoses, new poly upper engine bushing, new rear cam seals, new oil cap seal, cleaned ptc nipple, cleaned tb, i know more but can't remember at moment. Sprayed about everything in deep creep but so far everything has come apart easy. All lugs were never seized, plugs, etc. So has def been taken care of. AC blows ice cold, only downfall so far is ebrake doesnt seem hold and lot slop in handle. Seems have lot -hg at idle close to 30 could be cheap gauge though was $20 amazon special.

Sounds like a good buy. It also sounds like you’re fast and thorough. I’ll be following this. Post some pics?
