    Ok i have a nice 98 ford ranger 4x4 xlt , seen a honda accord 96 model i was thinking bout trading... the guy wanna give me 3000 for my ranger n he wants 4400 for the accord...

    the car is very very clean inside looks like a one owner car..
    flaws i found or not really flaws but point of interest so to speak..

    the car has over 240000 miles on it .. chk engine light is on idles sorta rough, think this is caused by the intake boot cracked, has slight oil leak looks to be coming from the valve cvr. and its automatic (yuck). tranny shifts hard every shift... my ? is yall think thats a good trade?

    i owe like 1080 on my ttruck so ill owe the guy like 2500.... what yall think?:confused:

    An accord with 240k is all but done. It isn't worth $500 with a shit transmission in it. Keep looking. Be patient.

    Search around, you can get a head cheaper than that.

    B18a/b heads are not that elusive. Plenty of people have them laying around because of LS/VTEC set-ups.

    He should be asking about $1,500 for that car. I sold my stick-shift EX 94 Accord that was in great shape a few years back for $2,500, so there's no way in hell this car is worth $4,400. Tell the dude he's on crack...

    A 1996 240k accord with a bum auto transmission is worth $1500??

    How? Why? Its a $500 beater.. I don't care if its shiny.

    I wouldn't buy that accord with anybody elses money, let alone mine. Unless I fell down and found an envelope with a few hundred in it. Even then I could find a better car.

    dont sell the Ranger.

    (God...please forgive me for saying this) lift that Ranger up into the air. i have a Ranger (see the thread titles: project LEMON LAID). maybe that will give you some inspiration to work on it.

    yeah Rangers are a bit more to lower but since yours has control arms and mine has ibeams, yours is cheaper and easier to lower than mine is. are you on RPS?
