I haven't done anything to it in years. I drive it every once in a while but it does a lot of sitting.

Well the transmission finally gave up on it. It's being rebuilt right now. Hopefully I won't have to deal with it again for a long long time.

I also fixed a axle bearing that was going bad and a seal. Think I'm going to order a new tps sensor and a crankshaft position sensor to see if I can get the computer controlling od.
