Tomorrow I’ll be driving up to Indiana to check out a beater ‘04 Baja. It’s a manual even.
I know to keep an eye out for head gasket symptoms like oily coolant, etc. Even considering an engine block test kit, if anyone has any opinions on that. It has 165k miles, would the timing belt had to been changed By then? Not really looking for a day one project like that. Any other things to keep an eye out for? Common Rust issues? I know this era wrx guys thought the transmission was weak but since this is n/a I’m not all that concerned.
