My wagon has a variety of problems and several things going for it. I need to either fix it up or dump it for a Scion Xb. There seems to be tons of expertise on this board so hopefully some of you can give me an idea what the car needs and roughly what it will cost. I'm a half-assed mechanic, I worked on small bikes when I used to drive them (RD 350), I replaced the head gasket on my Nissan PU 2 years ago. I'd probably have the local shop do most/all of the work depending on how busy I am. My goal is to get it back to easy starting and good MPG so that I can get 5 or 8 more years out of it. The good: Tires, brakes, engine power, no awful noises, most of the accessories work. The bad: Mpg is down from what it used to get, some bad oil leaks, Sometimes hard to shift into first when stopped, frequent smell of gas, cold starting and idling are messed up, hatch doesn't close or open good, some rust on body. The ugly: The shop we've used for years doesn't want to go near the carb on this thing. Thanks - Joel ETA: we just passed 200k miles last year.
