Not sure what he's thinking, but he's looking at a timing best and water pump change now ($1200-1500). And with it not running you don't know what else is wrong.

I'm not looking to buy it. just always looking on craigslist. what catches my eye is this engine that's supposedly only been in 20 pt cruisers and with 116xxxx miles is worth 2000.

Explains why I've been having to push my car everywhere.
God, I hate the taste of gasoline.

That's strange. A vent visor on drivers side front and a vent visor on passenger side rear. Why would someone do that?

Seriously though, it's most likely a T belt /Bent valve issue. He had somebody that knew what they were doing ,do a compression test. Hence the "missing spark plugs"!They told him the motor had no compression and he was done!

Doesn't mean it's not a good deal (at a more realistic price,) for somebody that knows what they are doing!
