Hay all looking at picking up a bunky xr6 for a grand its currently in bad nick and doesnt run but looks like a good project are there any hidden suprizes i should no about in regards to this model before i bite the bullet and pick it up..
Currently it doesnt start and the front electric windows are stuck down..
apparently it was driven to were it still sits and when they went to start it it wouldnt start and it has sat there for 8 months ... they got no licence so they havent bothered with it...its a guy i no from work and he to lazy to fix so i asked him if he wanted to part with it as iam looking for a new project...

well 1998 is either an AU or El

id be worred about head corrosion and possible blown head gasket if it E series

the fact the windows are down and wont start could be a simple fix of a new battery

if you do buy it
chaneg ALL the fluids, ie coolan,oil, g/boz/diff brake fluid
new plugs/leads, air filter and fuel filter

and how many kms has it done?

At the end of the day its a falcon so parts are cheap and readily available.

Engines can be had for less then 500, same for gearbox's and every other part is so cheap...

And if it is a late EL chances are it has the Hybrid AU motor (head) anyway...

and that means?

Hybrids still blow gaskets they didn't get a MLS gasket!
