I’m moving in a couple weeks, and decided to buy an old van instead of renting one. So this happened. It’s a 1990 Dodge Ram B250 Wagon, with the 3.9 V6. The fact that it has windows all around was a major plus.
I only paid $800 for it, because it has over 410,000km on it....and probably needs a radiator....but it was owned from new, by the same couple until June. I bought it from the second owners. It seems to have been taken care of really well, except for the paint. The interior is flawless though, I kind of love it.
Does anyone know these well? The previous owner replaced the thermostat, and flushed the coolant, but apparently after it gets up to temperature it keeps going, and then pukes coolant sometimes. He was pretty sure it’s the radiator, considering it looks old and really gunky inside. The engine runs shockingly well, I don’t think it’s a head gasket or anything. But if it turns out to just be the radiator, I might keep this massive thing, I’m really enjoying it.
