Ok so a couple of months ago I purchased a second bus from Broward county schools, a 2006 RE amtran, DT466E, MD3060 with a/c !!! Originally I bought it for parts but the body is in perfect condition so I change my mind on cutting it up.
Absolutely zero rust on this baby but....is was sold as a non runner, got chocolate milkshake in the motor...
But hey, only 177,272 miles !!!
So my questions are...
A: Can I drain it, put new oil/coolant to see if
- will it start and run?
- check to see if tranny goes into gear
- check a/c system.
B: Can I drive it very short distance, just to move it in my parking lot without worries of major damage? It will not be driven on the roads, just want to move it to a better spot to work on it.
C: What is the best method for cleaning out the block? I think I read somewhere before that dishwashing soap.... Calgon maybe ??? I don't know so I'll ask straight up... What the best way to flush the motor?
