So, about three days ago, my 94 Dodge ( Ol’Blu) developed a lifter tick, silent at idle, but louder and louder as rpms go up. A non car guy might not ever hear it, but it was driving me batty ! I called a buddy and found out a cam/lifter job was listed as 10hrs, average shop rate around here is $125/hr, plus the cost of a cam and lifter set, too much for me to afford.
Skip forward to this morning, I met up with my friend that I gave my 92Dodge to for breakfast, and found out he had listed the van on Craigslist for $800, basically what he had spent in parts sense I gave him the van. I asked what all has been done and got this list :
Radiator boiled and rodded
Valve cover gaskets
Rotors and drums
Shocks at all four corners
Belts and hoses
Pads and shoes
Sanded and primed the roof
Door window rubber
I had gave him the van because he needed it to tow his race car and to sleep in at the track, but he scored a sweet Class C RV for that.
So now I am gonna sell the 94 and drive the 92 again. . . . .
