60 of those miles are on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

What’s wrong with the truck:
*ABS doesn’t work. Needs a wheel speed sensor. ($132.09 part from www.trdparts4u.com).
*ECT Power Button Light Bulb went out a year ago.
THAT’S IT!! I’d sell this truck to my Mom.

I maintained this truck as if they were going to bury me in it. Regrettably, I have to sell this truck because my twin son’s and their car seats won’t fit in the back; I need something larger. In the last two weeks, I spent $3,800 fixing and reconditioning this truck for sale: Good-as-new Tranny, Front and Rear Brakes completely done, Replaced all rear axle components due to rear seals leaking, inspected, all fluids flushed. Call my mechanic (Alex Curtis) at GoodYear Tire and Auto. in Phoenixville, PA (610-935-3234) and he will verify all work done. Call Phil or Brian at Cottman Transmission to verify the transmission work and warranty at: (610-647-8484). The warranty is transferable and can be taken to any Cottman Transmission in North America! You can have anyone you want inspect this vehicle; there is NOTHING to hide. I just hope she goes to a good home; truly.

Thank You,

Mark Rubin

How about a couple of maintenance questions. When was timing belt last changed? When you mention 90k services like waterpump do I assume the sevices have been performed twice and most recently since you have 185k miles? Have you done any frontend related work? I'm looking at the pictures of the tires and they seem to have some inside wear. Is that just the camera angle? Thanks.

dlco,

The timing belt was changed at 90k miles. It has not been done since. So yes, it is due for another.

No frontend work other than tie-rod ends last year. It has the stock suspension, ball joints, Upper and Lower Control arms, and stock size tires (31x10.5x15). As for the wear, it must be the camera angle because the tires are perfect.

Thanks for your interest.

Point well taken. However, I've got 1-year old twin sons at home and don't have a lot of extra time to detail my engine. To be honest, I didn't realize it looked that hateful. At almost 190k miles it's my daily driver not a "show truck".

Thanks for the advice though.
