car I am thinking of buying.
Wednesday, June 06, 2012 12:02 AM
Teh vehicle runs....there is electrical propblems... so basically none of my gagues work and the battery dies if you start and stop the vehicle to many times in a day, so i was disconnecting the battery evrytime i parked it. I also have a switch that turns my cooling fan off and on.

The vehicle is a 2.4 GT

I am looking around $900 for the whole vehicle and this is negotable.

the seller tells me this is whats wrong with it. I have drove by it to see what it looks like and the body is in great shape. What would be some things to look for when looking under the hood as I know the 2.4`s are known for their head gasket problems. as for the electrical stuff I am pretty sure it is the alternator and it need a new set of gauges!






I am looking for struts for my newly aquired Eibach pro-kit performance coils, If anybody has some?

2.4s are known for headgasket problems? I thought it was rod number 3, a craptastic oil pump design, and teenagers beating the crap out of them...

Buy it for $750

You are in the right area for the electrical stuff, but I would go over the fan switch wiring and check to see if anything else may of been cut or taped up as well.
