Buying an SVT with 150,000 miles

Any tips in what to look for? I already know the AC doesn't work and it may be leaking oil from the real seal... Thanks!

Thanks. I took it for a spin and the motor seemed peppy. As for the gears it shifted smoothly however when shifting into second I didn't get that "double click" like ya do in all the other gears....Any ideas? Barring any girlfriend jokes..:)

Oh it is throwing a code. Guy says its an O2 sensor but I'm gonna look into that....

If that`s the black 2003 that Angelo has for sale in SE denver it`s kinda beat up I looked at it and gave it the walk away because it needed so much work but it can be put back together with enough money and labor thrown at it good luck and ask him about the cam belt again he was going to find out if it was changed

Hey man, It was that black 2003 of Angelo's. I walked as well. Was leaking oil from the rear seal like a sorority girl at Bladder Bust. Anyway someone did pick it up for $2700..Thanks for your take on it....
