So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

the math here is all wrong! if u failed to fix the car you wouldnt be only down 90 dollars,... u have to add the money to had to spend buying the new parts u needed to try to fix it, and add the money you think ur worth in ur time spent fixing the car, cause that time u are losing "money" considering you could be fixing a "fixable" car.... this is to much a risk to buy a car like that. I once sold a BMW for 1000€ in pristine condition to a dealer, he was thinking he was doing the dealing of his life, and I knew the car had issues that would go above 9k€.... buying blind cars like this is NEVER a good deal guys, dont do this
ChrisFix 3 өдрийн өмнө
Thanks for sharing, that's why I waited to buy parts until I was sure the car would start up and work properly. If it didn't work, then I would be out a few hours and $90 :p

I probably would've replaced the muffler bearings too since the muffler needed to be replaced anyway. May as well, just to be sure the exhaust friction doesn't build up and blow a fuse. 🤤👍

Chris, my 2014 car stopped running some time ago, I don't have a lot of money. Initially it was cutting out, couldn't diagnose why, even with a reader, had a mechanic look at it, he said he didn't know what the problem is, but changed coilpack/sparks. It ran for a short while and then began to cut out again, until eventually it cut out and won't start again. Truth is I don't want to pay someone to fix it, but if you have any advice it would be appreciated.

Best bet if you went the $410 route is to pull some parts that do $ on Ebay etc, THEN have them haul it off for that same 410 or better. I've hade them flatbed away cars with no wheels since I kept em, and still get the initial offer multiple times. Desirable interior pieces are great to remove. Get ALL your $ back, and get paid for your time.
