Stuff like that happens when they sit. Mine has been sitting way too long. I know I'll find some bad news

Ironic .... just did installed a rebuilt 200R4 and when I pulled the engine found the prior owner (a collector) had let the car sit in a warehouse for ages - everything leaked ... Ended up finding over-machined heads (Cylinder 7 had been cut into the cooling jacket), leaking rear main seal, leaking oil pan, leaking timing belt cover, tired fuel/water pumps etc. Did most of the work myself (except trans rebuild) but hit almost $2,000 in parts alone - made friends with our UPS driver though!

Now my wife calls my car "Your Money Pit" lol Her true name is Raquel but I doubt my wife will change her mind!
