Asked by Apr 30, 2015 at 12:26 PM about the 1995 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The hood was off for a year. It was sitting under a tree and the only thing covering the
engine was a towel. Were going to put a different engine in it this summer. What all do I
need to do to make sure everything is good?
