Kinda makes you wonder why it's for sale, don't it?

The car is probably already a money pit, so much that the seller didn't even want to get it fixed before selling it so in the long run it's most likely not going to be cheap to keep it running. To find out what is wrong, to start, you would have to check for fuel and spark when it's not running, check for codes stored in the computer and vacuum leaks.
