Hi all, joined this forum as this is my first truck (have always driven coupes and sedans) Here's hoping I got a good one. Clean, underside seems little rust for Wisconsin and age of truck. 170k actual miles. The bad news: it had been sitting until very recently, for 8 months to a year. So it's right to the shop for brakes. Was parked on grass so no idea on seal leakage, and shop will address the squealing belts. No, they didn't start it while parked. Did I just buy a money pit? Wanted something that wouldn't rust out structurally in 5 years or less, wanted a van or SUV with 4x4 cause of snow and steep hills in town. I realize 4x4 takes more maintenance..How do you all like 98 Explorers, and what's your experience with the 4L SOHC? And the transmission.😊
