Umm I'm assuming that stalling was the (desired) effect? I mean when you put a manual transmission vehicle in gear without moving or giving gas, it -will- stall. right?Originally posted by lstrunk
Its a 5 speed, the transmission is good, it shifted and everything just fine, and when I put the E-brake on and put the car in gear it would stall.
Have you had a chance to drive it yet? Also you need to take it to a trusted mechanic for a full tip-to-tail checkout. It's usually called a "used car inspection" and should cost about $50 for him to do it. It's WELL worth it. It'll tell you any potential problem areas that your truck will have, and probably point out the first things that need to be fixed.
That truck should have another year or two in it left. $675 isn't bad for a working vehicle.
