Just wondered what are the main things to look out for on buying a secondhand trooper.
Im looking at either a late Citation or Insigna with an auto box..

Ive never had a diesel before, but i know there has been problems with injectors..
Also what about the front axle, as i heard of problems here before with not engaging into four wheel drive.

as with any trooper RUST there a tubular frame and rust from the inside out :(

to be blunt, can you live with 0 to 60 of well over 20 secs :?:
thell run 70 but there meant to live at 50/60
i think of them as a low speed, long range auto.

the tank in the left top corner is an indacater to the auto having a dealer installed replacement engine.


the rod on the left is what most diesel troopers originally had.
a small number where sold with the middle one origanly how many i have not a clue Jerry :!:
the one on the right was never sold in a new auto only a replacment rod in a short blok engine theres only 800 sets of them in the USA


sadly if you get one with out the tank, its a shot in the dark.
the rods are known for giving any where from 20K to 300K plus miles

even if you drive it right, some one befor you had it could have over revved it stretching the rod bolts.

when you have a handle on that, we can get to the drive train :lol:
