It's time to let the red wagon go. I bought it last year in hopes of getting it up and running for my wife but she has since gotten a new car. I'm going to try selling here before Craigslist so, here it goes.

I got the car in May of last year. The person I bought it from said the car was parked under a tree for 3 years. When I bought it, it did not run. I've since installed a new battery, plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor, and coil. Also put in a new fuel pump relay, changed the oil and filter, and dropped Marvel Mystery oil into the cylinders to get things moving again. The car starts without hesitation and runs just fine, however, it will only go into gear for a minute or two and then it slips out of gear. I've done some troubleshooting and have determined that the Automatic Transmission filter may be clogged with contaminates after sitting for so long. It may be as simple as replacing the filter and running some seafoam through it to flush it out but who knows?

For more history on the car, check this thread: http://www.ovtuners.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=8793

Stats:
-Red 1994 850 Turbo Wagon
-Automatic
-Black leather interior
-Dark tinted windows
-Sony Xplod stereo
-149,662 miles

Pros:
-Clean title.
-Starts without hesitation and runs.
-Straight body
-Interior leather is in fantastic shape.
-Seals are good, no moisture or mildew inside the car.
-All electrical components work (windows, door locks, power seats, sun roof, blinkers, tail and headlamps, etc).
-Comes with Haynes guide and misc. parts that I haven't put into the car yet.

Cons:
-Transmission issue mentioned above.
-3 tires have slow leak (will hold air for up to a week, so you should still be able to tow it without issue).
-Clear coat is de-laminating in spots on the driver side.

I'm asking $775 which puts me at a break even with what I've put into it. I'm not looking to make a profit, I just need to pass this project on to someone who has time for it. If you're interested, you can respond in this thread or email me at maverick4090@gmail.com.

Thanks!
