I may buy this bus and just needed some opinions.
I drive an Element so it was much different.
There was play in the steering, the brakes were quiet and worked but the pedal seemed a lot more firm than my car.
stopped straight. no clunking on turns. Shifted fine. quiet.
When we first started it it fired up right away but idle was off and it stopped
after the test drive it idled fine.
Checked oil. it was good. no burnt smell. Trans fluid was red
radiator looked new but reservoir was low.
It had rained a lot and there was one small puddle behind the drivers seat.
on window was cracked but intact.
squeaking from the belt but it looked fine. hoses looked good.
new tires, new exhaust, no rust, 1994 vandura 3500, clean title as BU (bus)
reg good until June 2019
was a church bus.
310k on the od
no records of the engine/trans work. said rebuilt 100k ago.
Man bought it from church and owned it for 6 months title still in church name. Son told dad to sell it as too many projects no space.
is that the front seal leaking? There was no oil on the ground before or after test drive.
here are a few pix
I will upload a vid so you can hear the squeking
