Just start out doing preventative maintenance. Plugs wires filters fluids etc. At that mileage expect stuff to fail. Sounds like you already have. Go ahead and save up for a repair bill. Who knows yours might be bullet proof.

You answered your own question. Also please do not start three threads. Welcome to MM
If you do not have the resources then you obviously cannot touch the motor. Therefore save up and just drive it.

id start looking for a parts car thats been in a wreck or somethin, cuz u never know what could go out first. with that mileage could be anything from your alternator to your power window motors.

Your posts hurt my eyes. If you are a mechanic then you would be asking these. I can understand asking what are the weak links but not sure what else you are asking.

be realistic just use it and fix little things here and there save up money and if something major goes sell it not sure how much you paid but it shouldnt have been more than 1500 and thats being generous so a major repair could run you that in labor

somewhere around 4000..but honestly no need to try and work a motor with over 200k itl kill it faster and then cost you better off swapping in a newer split port motor can find one I bet under 500
