If the only problem with bus 101 is DEFINITELY just a wire problem, bus 101. But based on the fact that they let you commit to a bus before disclosing the oil problem, I would be skeptical about any information they are giving you.

Are you able to have a third party go with you that will be able to give you good advice on the buses?

Getting the wrong bus to start is a great way to never get your skoolie dreams off the ground, especially if finances are tight.

I can go to the bus shop and ask what's wrong with them and all. That's how I found about bus 102 so I asked about bus 101 too

I agree with Pigpen, if they are being honest the easier fix (cost wise) is electrical especially if you know how to trouble shoot those issues. An engine rebuild can be super expensive.
