Long story. If you look at the pictures before. It had HUGE flares on it, the front ones. I attempted to cut them down & marked everything wrong. Haha. I'm still in the process of finding just stock front flares. It kinda looks like it's going to fly away now.

I know, i know...I'm only joking with you. Drain the oil & take it around the block a few times. That should do it in

id love to do that, but when the mechanic tears the engine down to figure out what went wrong, it will be pretty obvious y it went wrong. riht now, its dying on its own, may take a lil longer, but that should be fine

If it blew up why would you tear the engine down unless you were planning to fix it?

if u drain all the oil and drive it around, the engine seizes up. and knowing my dad, he would want to know y it seized up. and since it wouldnt cost us anything to have it torn down in a situation like that, then he would have it torn down. thats the down side to knowing the owner of a shop.

I just use a 4wd.com sticker so no one can actually tell there's not a lock in there.

98 ford mini van. with as neglected as it was when it was my moms, its held up really well. 180,000 miles. and the only reason it needed a new transmission the first time round, was my moms fault.
