We purchased a 1978 Dodge Tioga for $1800 from a "nice" guy on craigslist. We DID NOT have it looked over before we bought because well, we were just plain STUPID and GULLIBLE! The story is long and embarrassing so I won't go there. The cab and overhead AC and Frig do not work and there's a leak from under the water pump. I've pulled off the wall covering in the bathroom and ceiling because it was coming down but now I don't know what to do with it as some of the paneling came with the paper because of WATER DAMAGE. Now we took it for smog check today and it FAILED@!#$ I'm sick to my stomach about the fact that we were so stupid but not having a frig - no biggy. We'll use a cooler. No AC? It's fall, we'll get one next season. The water pump "should" be an easy fix. The walls? We'll figure something out. But this smog fail is killing me! We can't even use it except for extra house guests. The test said "Idle Speed HC result: 2210 - Greater that 1400 parts per million" Where do we start? We changed the oil before we took it in. It was still running a bit rough. Oh man, will we ever be able to use it? We bought old because we couldn't afford much more. Now look where we are?@! Good thing I still own a tent! LOL! Oh well, if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. We've ordered a Haynes Repair Manual.
