Well I'd be a little concerned if you put litter in there. That would easily explain the problem lol
I haven't really set a price yet but I just looked up KBB value 4350/5100/5575 I'll probably start out asking 5100 and listen to offers

How many miles on the Sport Trac? $5000 is a good price if its in the low 100ks.

Plus I remember you did some engine work on it.

The sport trac has 147,000 miles...it's running good now...
Anyway just a little update. I got the ST done...listed it on ebay. Today I replaced the front bumper on the Neon so its pretty much done except I charged the a/c today and discovered the heater control in the dash is broken...have to pick one up sometime. So I put #26 in the garage so I'll be getting the motor out soon. Here's a recent pic, I couldn't stand the rusty wheels...lol

Wow #26 looks half way decent now with just the wheel change. Did you pick those up off CL? I feel like I've seen them before. You find an engine for it yet?

Neon looks....um....good....for a Dodge anyway hahaha.

Well I only paid 400 for it so that's cheap, even for a parts truck. As far as the bumpers, I think they are just faded black or gray.
WOW.............. Now That's A Great Deal !!!

Hey all. I have kinda taken a break but not because of what happened. I hurt my back at work and have been going thru therapy. I am almost back to normal now. I have been catching up on yard work and trimming the overgrown trees and cleaning up around here. I was also car shopping for a replacement for the sport trac. We picked up a 05 Cobalt for my daughter. Sorry I haven't updated but I have really made no progress to speak of. I have the truck in the garage and the motor is almost ready to pull out. I had a couple bellhousing bolts that wouldn't move. After breaking sockets I heated the aluminum to get one of them out, still one more to go and the engines ready to pull. I'll probably have it out this weekend.
