Low Mileage High Idle, Good or Bad?
I am about to go look at my first school bus!!!!!!! OMG I am excited. The bus was advertised as a 1998 Thomas Bus CAT 3116 diesel with under 7k miles. They said it was a very short route and mostly all idle time. I am kind of nervous because that is an absurdly low number for something that is almost 20 years old.
Are there things I should be concerned about? I think I am going to do an Oil Analysis on it to hopefully let me know how worn the engine is. I am also on the hunt for a diesel mechanic in the area so I have someone with me that knows what they are doing.
