Pull the sheet metal that is the ceiling. The fiberglass batting that's insulation is crap, and can be full of mold and rot. Because do you *really* want to be breathing this crap in-
I've got an 03 Amtran RE (Int'l 3000RE) with the same plant, 70k less on the odo, but it runs strong. If you hadn't gotten new fluids when you picked it up, at the very least do an oil analysis. Blackstone Labs
do a cheap and accurate test kit by mail.
