So I just bought this 97 quigley E250 5.4 in Baltimore...only problem is I live in Los Angeles.
I'm flying out next week to drive it 2,700 miles back. The van has 180k and a solid case of the dw according to my friend who picked it up for me.
I'LL HAVE A FULL OPEN CARGO SPACE IF ANYONE WANTS HAVE ME BRING PARTS OUT TO THE WEST COAST
I'm gearing up for a quick day of maintenance in baltimore before I hit the road and wanted to see if there is anything i'm missing in terms of service and replacement.
