Re: Pocatello V10-repair report

Hmmm, that's pretty low miles to need tranny fluid IMO. It does have a receiver hitch too. I wonder what it's towed and whether the tranny has been overheated. I would be particularly careful if I bought it. Get yourself a $100 Scanguage II which will give you real time trans fluid temp and watch it from now on. I absolutely love that feature of the scanguage, since trans fluid temp is about the most important one to pay attention to.

Good luck!

Re: Pocatello V10-repair report

Thanks, 86! (Makes me think of Get Smart. )

I'm pretty sure it needed the fluid because they had to take something off / empty it to do the repair - but I know diddly about this stuff so that could be entirely wrong, too.

Re: Pocatello V10-repair report

Dia,

So, you're going to let this one go? I've been following this thread and have kinda lost track of your original goal .. you're looking for a V10 passenger van? RB or EB? 2WD or 4WD?

Re: Pocatello V10-repair report

At the moment, we're letting this one go. It's a great match for what we want, but the timing is inconvenient financially. We *could* do it, but hubs would feel better if we waited another two months.

The holy grail for us is a 2008 or newer 2WD V10 EB passenger for about $14,000. We'll have a CCV poptop put on it and build out the interior ourselves. This one is almost perfect. Yeah, power locks/windows/mirrors would be nice, and a limited slip axle, but none of that is a deal-breaker, especially for the price.

If hubs comes back from the campout and says we're back on, I'd still grab this one but at the moment, he's saying wait.
