That sucks, but if they'll take it back that's pretty cool of them.

That was an auction wasn't it? As far as I know sales are usually final. You can say that they misrepresented it in the advertisement and that's your best bet at bending their ear a little.

So, I spent every dollar I've saved on a bus that needs more work than its worth.

so then start out to try andfind out whats wrong rather than just assume its scrap... it did drive so at least it runs.. may just need some adjustments and such to dial it in..

Very true. I'm just upset with the whole situation is all. It'll be alright. The cummins is one of the popular engines of its time and from what I understand easier than some to work on.

Just have to take a step back, calm down and then put on your reasoning hat and tackle it one little thing at a time..

fiorst thing id do is check the oil Level and see if it is OVER full...
a bad fuel injecotr or 2 will cause an engine to bust out black smoke like crazy.. and dumps fuel into the crankcase.. seriously thinning the oil and then over-filling it which often causes leaks.... not saying thats whats wrong.. but its a place to start...

also if your fuel injection is electronic your dashboard may very well tell you of an engine code to help you along with what may be going on...
