I am looking at purchasing one--has a (replaced) lexus v-6 engine on it (2005). engine has 165K but overall car has 235K. Is it worth $2,000.00?

Asked by Apr 24, 2012 at 12:13 AM about the 1994 Toyota Camry LE V6 Coupe

Question type: General

What advice can you give regarding how to decide if this is a worthy purchase for the price? We know
everything works on the car, that it has been maintained, but wonder about a larger problem like a
differential (it hasn't been diagnosed, but car makes a slight noise when turning occasionally). The price
of the car is $2,000.00. Knowing a car this old is bound to have issues, what can you say?

The noise you are hearing when you turn could be a wheel bearing. The value of this car is hard to determine without seeing it. I would pay very close attention to the undercarriage on the year of a car. Look for excessive rust in the usual places ie. brakelines, gas lines, rocker panels, bottom of doors etc. Pay close attention to the fluids and their condition including coolant reservoir for any signs of oil. A good check you can do on the transmission is to pull the dip stick and wipe it with a clean white cloth. If you notice a lot of black residue there is significant transmission wear, a little is normal. If your satisfied with all these checks that helps get it closer to what he is asking.
