2001 Sport Trac
I am new to the ranks of Sport Trac owners. Just got my 2001 130Kmiles two weeks ago. I purchased from a GM dealer. Now that I purchased the truck, I find that the check engine light bulb had been removed, an oxygen sensor was unplugged and 8 codes reside on the computer. My long time trusted mechanic tells me that the rear timing chain must be replaced and to do so the engine must be pulled. Approx cost if all timing chains are replaced is about $3,000. The dealer gave me the ole, "sorry about that, it's your truck now" since it was an "as is" deal. Any advice, legal or mechanical would be helpful. I am in Indiana.
