Vadslram, you are right on.
Even though it had just been changed I did the oil and filter again. I also swapped out the antifreeze with some fresh. Taking her in a day or so to have tranny, T-case, and differential; fluids changed. All rubber hoses, vacuum hoses, etc seem good and pliable. Not sure if thay may have already been changed...
I will say though, I can tell she was driven some. There is a decent oil sheen on the motor and most of her components under the hood.
One thing that was rather odd to me was looking underneath there is a slight sheen on the bottom side of the tub above the tranny. I've heard the ba-10/5 can blow oil out the vent tube and that it's recommended to raise it, so I'm wondering if that could be my culprit. Anyone heard of this issue?
On a lighter note, I made my first purchase... some new side view mirrors to replace the cracked stock ones. Also, the GF and myself are sneaking away in her this weekend. Gonna take her down to Daulphin Island, AL, take the ferry over to Gulf Shores, and head on down to Destin for a few days of relaxation. Hopefully it's at least sunny/warm enough to get the tops off the doors. If nothing else the girlfriend said I can take her top off!
I haven't said it recently, but THANKS AGAIN for all the info! It is noted and hopefully will help me make the right decisions!
