86 560SEC for $6500... Worth It?
Today I looked at a 86 560 SEC at a used car lot near my mechanics shop. It is in prety good condition interior/exterior wise. The engine is a little rough though. the trans shifts really hard changing gears, my mechanic thinks its a bad vacuum modulator, It idles at about 1000rpm, possible vacuum leak. I checked the ECU It works fine. It also has a rough idle. which my mechanic thinks it could be a dead cylander. blows a little blue smoke too. I looked under the oil cap and the valvetrain looked suprisingly clean. I also ran a carfax report and it came up clean exept a emmissions test failed 5 years ago. Other than that the car drives and looks really good. Is it worth it??
