im in floral park. its on border of queens and long island.

its got 170K. Alternator is charging high(already has new alternator). i might need to get ecu. engine oil pressure drops, needs new bearings or oil screen.
Oh and it needs a headgasket. oil and coolant mixing.

other than that she is good.
