I just bought this truck a few weeks ago. I bought it so I could learn about how they work and learn how to repair most things. I've already taken out both fuel tanks, cleaned the fuel lines and replaced the rubber hose parts, put in a fuel filter, replaced all spark plugs, wires, rotor, and cap, replaced the belts, and put it all back together. Did an oil change, oil filter, air filter, also.
So that is as much as I know about cars at this point. I have two questions:
1. I think I have a sticky valve lifter. Is this a job I can tackle? I've tried treating the oil with sea foam with no luck. Any ideas?
2. I think the transmission might be going. A guy told me that these transmissions are "super easy to rebuild". Is this something I could handle? I would be willing to pay for professional advice but am not sure how to go about it.
have the same problem?
