Thanks for the replies. No, I did an API, lol. I knew better too, but It seemed in such good shape.... It spent most of it's life in South Georgia. I got it from a used car dealer and negotiated a 6 month drive-train warranty. Also got him to write in a 48 hour return with no questions asked, so I could look it over real good.

So far the only issue I've come across is that the oil/coolant temp gauge is really low, sometimes it hasn't budged after 15 minutes of driving, then it may rise if I get on the highway. The highest I've seen it get is around 210*. There no codes about running cold, etc and the car blows good heat, so I'm assuming it's the oil temp sensor and not the thermostat sticking open. What is normal temp on the gauge anway? This is the 4 cyl N20 engine.
