It's a 98 and it has the 2.2 and a 5speed, I know the trannies are different but I was just curious as to what to look for with this motor, it has 144000 miles on it and still seems pretty solid for what it is. Her step-dad and I think the head has been taken off of the car before because it's exceptionally clean given the look of the rest of the engine, the bottom end is still really dirty and he top end is clean. Not sure what the maintenance history of the car but I'm sure it could use a tune up in a few thousand miles just to give it one. Anything to look for?

Do they have the same problem with timing chains as our trucks? Might be someting to think about.

I would have asked why the head was removed. Also, you should just go a head and do a tune up (and replace ALL filters) since it is new to you. You have no idea what parts or even how long the last one was. Plugs, oil, filters, and everything else is pretty cheap.

Also look at the rest of the parts, the hoses, the fuel lines, etc.
