Default Getting my 94' XLT back on the road!

My 94' XLT has been sadly setting idle for the past couple years. Has a lot of little issues that need to be fixed. The main one is a leaky heater core (hopefully!). I just sent my wife to go pick up a new heater core so that I can get it swapped out later this week. And I will be getting a couple new tires and an oil change soon. That should get it up and running again.

Later on I will need to swap out the drivers side door hinges. Fix both power windows. Give it a tune up, some suspension work. And the list goes on! LOL

I am sure I will have a few questions from time to time!

I just did same thing . 4 years . Other than throwing check engine lights was fine . I repacked all wheel bearings and did all new brakes calibers cylinders . Form past experience I know they will hang up or start to leak . Check brake lines,belts hoses.

I have to do new pump and tank up front they were back when stored.

HA! HA! I'm a supporting member and you're not!

I have a bag full of new plastic window gear buttons if you determine that to be your problem. Free except postage. Same for anyone else.

UPDATE: I got the heater core changed out. The old one was plugged up really bad, could barely get air through it. Replaced battery terminals and dropped a fresh battery in. Put a can of Seafoam and 5 gallons of premium fuel in it, and bam started up like a champ!

Now I will start it up every morning and check for leaks. And I have to swap out a tire that I got replaced. And I am taking the tint off the side windows because it was in poor shape and getting hard to see through. Will post some photos soon!
