I want to keep my 1989 Toyota Pickup 4WD, but I feel as if I'm getting in too deep over my head because of the age and my lack of knowlegde on the vehicle. When I say that, I mean the Toyota 4x4, not my actual vehicle.
I do have car knowledge, but not towards 4x4s. There are many things I could do to get the truck running to my satisfaction...but there are some "big" things that keep bothering me. Here is a small list:
~Timing chain(mileage is at 165xxx right now) ~Oil leak(not bad, but still there) ~4 wires hanging from various places(no clue as to what they might be, have pics, just ask) ~Bucks when you hit anything bigger then a pebble in the road ~Alignment(front tires lean in excessively) I haven't tried to align it yet, but it leans in EXCESSIVELY!
That is just a few things that are bothering me.
I really want a 4x4, but I might just get a Ford. That way, I have more knowledge about it, people at work have more knowledge about it, both they and I can work on it, and would have parts at my disposal for it. Yes, I do work at a Ford dealership.
I just don't know what to do....I guess this is a dumb question to ask since this is the Toyota forum, but what do you think??????
