Default buying advice

looking to get a super carry, not looking to spend too much (800 max or so), seen a few but they've got about 80k miles on the clock, is that pretty high for one? they're M/N reg. are they good little engines or is that pretty much the end of its life? anything i should be looking out for apart from rust? how reliable are they?

hi razor,

80km is not bad but the first thing you need to do is change the timing belt. i bought mine with 40T km+ on the dial but broke my timing belt at 65T km. the guy who was driving it at the time didn't know better so he tried starting the engine which led to bent valves and what not. i ended up getting a new engine. but if you have it checked for leaks, cracks or broken gaskets and if everything looks ok then you have no problem. these engines can last you a lifetime if properly taken cared off. better to get a low mileage engine which was not used for hard work just to be on the safe side.

oh, a pressure test on the cylinders would give you a more precise answer if the engine is still intact.

hi razor,

they do not come with airbags...that is what made them a bit cheaper as compared to other cars there.

tibs, did you have your engine pressure tested? just wondering how much did it cost you in that case, because our van is more than 15 years old (of course the engine as well), and would like to try if the van's engine could still hold up that power.

thanks!

razor, no problem. try checking the other threads in this forum for more insights. but as for me, my carry has more than paid for its worth after two years of working with it. not to mention the fun that came along with it!

j-six, our rides are almost the same age. but as long as there are no oil leaks, you dont loose water from the radiator, no white or black smoke from your tailpipe, expect it to last a longer time. just remember to tune it up twice a year, change oils regularly, and always clean your air filter.
