Engine Mechanical problem
1985 Volkswagen Van 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic? Miles
Okay, I know very little about cars but I will try to provide as much info as I can. I bought this van last weekend. The speedometer/odometer isn't working so I have no idea what the mileage is. I would assume very high. It currently reads 139k. It was running when I bought it. When I brought it home it was having problems staying running while idling. The OXS light is on and the temperature light was flashing. I was planning on having an oil change/tune up this weekend. A couple of days ago I was driving it and it stalled. It turns over, but very slowly. A friend brought some jumper cables over and we let it sit for a good half or so. It turned over faster, but wouldn't start. This morning I tried starting it again, it turned over very slowly again. Any information you can provide would be helpful.
