Our youngest took our 1996 to Washington with him ~ California did not want to smog it here for us *Warnerwrini said:I just bought, via auction, a 1996 Isuzu Trooper, 4WD, manual, V6 .
It has got 160K miles on it . I have got no history on the car .
I am in CA and it has never been registered here
so the first task has been to get smogged
CA license plate ready .
By the time I pick it up from the mechanic tomorrow, I will have:
put new tires on it
put new brakes on it
changed the timing belt
because who knows when that was done ?
changed the drive belts, fluids, and oil filter
put in a new battery and alternator .
I have got put a new windshield in it the current one is cracked
and then the repair / replace / add on options
start to get more discretionary , I think .
Anything else you all think I should do
as a part of the first round of maintenance ?
This car is going to be a weekend camping car,
off road to get to fishing spots but nothing to strenuous .
The occasional city driving
as a backup to our Subaru .
I appreciate any suggestions and advice .
Welcome aboard. I can't answer your questions, but i can offer a tip on posting. I'm guessing you're new to this.freedomringer1776 said:What kind of engine oil should I use in my 95 rodeo 3.2 v6 with 188k miles. Also leaks oil, coolant and transmission fluid. Any helpful hints on where to find the source of the leaks? I know it is a common issue.
