I bought a '88 DX from this guy (who happens to be a preacher) for $1200. He raved about this car and said that he maintained the vehicle. I wanted it because we sold our '87 when we moved back to the East Coast in October. After the title changed hands, all "Heck" broke loose! The car began stalling constantly to the point that it died on the interstate! A local Honda dealership said that the carb was shot and needed to be replaced. Since this car was a surprise gift for my mom (before the problems), she footed the bill for the carb. A week later, the same problems arose. I changed the fuel pump, fuel cutoff relay and it seemed okay. Then the gas gague started acting loopy, so I ordered a fuel meter unit from the dealer. That was fine. Now the car is stalling
AGAIN!! Oh yeah, I forgot about the split heater hose from the intake manifold to the thermostat housing AND the stripped oil pan. I called him a few times, but he was unreachable. He left some items in the car and I went to his house to drop them off. He wasn't there and haven't heard from him since. Is that messed up or what!?
