after 2 weeks of waiting i have AC. went to change the AC high port and the New compressor would not engage. it will do it maually but the vehicle would not tell it to engage. Shade tree mech did some electrical check between other jobs and found AC relay Switch connector to be off. so he had to re pin it. now i have full AC, this week imma put some LED resistors for the tail lights and do some painting. on the black parts with Sating blak

Got an update y'all. They finally decided to pay me and not total loss it. I will get a check for 2,492.76 and keep the truck and keep the clean title. Since they say in Florida they pay 100 percent of the damages. All just over that lil dent.
Been since the end of June dealing with the other person's insurance company.
So I get to keep my 230k mile beater 👍

That is plenty to get it repaired AND have some left over for extra mods

I also picked this up today, might keep it or sell it. Paid 600 bucks clean title.
00 two door jimmy with 198k miles.
Needs a 1-2 shift solenoid and a.few.other cosmetic things you would expect for a 21 yr old vehicle. But I couldn't pass it up.

Tomorrow I will be picking up this 01 xtreme blazer with 101k miles, but it might have a bad motor.
They just had a shop replace the crank sensor and the dist cap and rotor and plugs and wires for 800 bucks. And they are telling them the motor is bad.
So I'm gonna go check it out and buy it anyway since I kind of know the people. They want 2 grand and won't budge off the price but it's to clean to pass up.
I noticed it has a column shifter, I thought the xtremes had the floor shifter and power windows?

Checked it out today, it's a real extreme. Just waiting on the tow guy to deliver it later.
Gonna change the camshaft and crank sensors and see what happens.
Has a slight knock on start up,and after a min or so it wants to stumble like it's dying.
The lady I am getting it from is the second owner and she had it since 2004, she said the shop told her she needs a new motor and tried to charge her $6,000 or they would let her trade this in on a used vehicle they had on the lot. I think they were just trying to rip her off and take this from her.

Probably shouldn't be posting phone numbers on here.... you know you can crop the photos so they don't show all the black space and phone crap?

Or you know, just save the photo to your phone instead of screenshooting everything?

Changed the camshaft sensor inside the distributor with a used good one I had laying around, I still get the code
Now I get to diagnose a rod knock or a cracked flex plate or what.
It knocks sometime, but I dont lose oil pressure, it stays at 40 at idle and then after a min or so it starts to stumble like it wants to die.
I also have something drawing power and killing the battery, so maybe I have some kind of short also and it's not getting enough voltage to the cam sensor plug?

Picked me up another project today, 00 blazer trailblazer edition 164k miles, i originally bought it to pull the motor out and put in that blue extreme that I had just bought, but I kind of don't really want to tear this thing apart. Plus I never seen one of these before and it is a two-wheel drive model. Gave a grand for it. It runs solid, just needs some love and a good detail.
