  • Approaching the vehicle we noted body damage done to the right front corner and the drivers side mirror is broken. Left sliding door and rear hatch won't open automatically but do manually. Started the vehicle and noted the TPMS light is on – tire pressure is good but the tires are very old. Test drove without incident – vehicle drove well. Lights all working properly but the third brake light. Wipers are worn. Engine oil is fresh and air filter appears like new. Fluid levels full but transmission fluid is a bit dark. Battery is dated October '21 and tests good with 757 cold cranking amps but is a bit low on charge. Hoisted for inspection. Tires are dry rotted. Front brakes have 9mm remaining and rears 5mm. Suspension, steering, and exhaust appear intact. Noted transmission pan is leaking a bit of fluid and a very small seep at the steering rack. Only recommendation would be to service the transmission. .

  • Verified vehicle cranks but won't start. Initial inspection showed the air intake boot connecting the mass air flow sensor to the engine was missing. Air intake tube was located inside the cab. When we went to install the tube we noted the fuel bleeder screw by the primer was leaking fuel – was loose. We tightened the bleeder and primed the system. Vehicle started and ran. Noted the Check Engine Light was on – we scanned for codes and received P0420 (catalyst system low bank 1). Let the vehicle run and inspected for additional fuel leaks – none found. Let vehicle sit for several hours to cool off – continued to restart properly. Test drove without incident. Let sit overnight – restarted properly in the morning. Let sit until afternoon and vehicle continued to start properly. Monitoring fuel pressures thru the scan tool everything is within spec. Test drove again and reinspected for any fuel leaks – none found. .
