1996 old handkerchief, Lu Y2W521, in service area on Tibet Road in 2012.
6 years have passed since that old PA was released, and a lot of things have happened in the middle, and I haven’t come back for so many years, and it has been silent for a long, long time! In July last year, LP said that he wanted to take his children to Tibet to play, and there was another wave in his heart. I once again moved the idea of buying an old car. I am very satisfied with the old car in 12 years, whether it is fuel consumption, space, or other things. , the only uncomfortable thing is that the power attenuation is too large on the plateau, which makes it difficult to accelerate and overtake at high altitudes (4500-6000 meters), so the power demand this time becomes the lowest V8 head, and models with a displacement of 4.5 or more are optional. Only the Daichi and the LC series are left. It is undeniable that Toyota is a good car, but I really have no feelings for Toyota, so in the end only the Daichi is left. I don’t like the peanut lamp of WK. A guy who is cleaner than his face!
The last option is only WJ Grand Cherokee. I started a car search trip in 4.7.8. All kinds of solo trips. A year ago, I ran about 3,000 kilometers in the provinces and cities around Beijing. There are various websites, apps and second-hand cars on the Internet. I went to the market one by one and looked at no less than 20 cars. This does not include the many photos I saw on the Internet, and the accidents can be seen at a glance and the cars that have been restored to plain cars after modification.
The picture left in the circle of friends at that time.
At the end of January this year, I was driving around and passed by a car dealership. I went in with the mentality of trying. I saw her for the first time in the yard. She was parked in the corner covered in dust and no one cared. I came here to buy a car. Most of them are low-income groups who buy some cheap cars and back-to-back vehicles for daily transportation. There are very few large-displacement off-road vehicles here, and few people buy such large-displacement old cars. I took two photos casually, posted them on Moments, asked about the price, and offered 55,000 yuan, so I left without looking carefully. On the 25th, I packed up and went home for the New Year. I stopped by Tianjin and Dongying to see two cars. When I got back to my home in Qingdao, I was not idle. I dug graves online every day, and called to ask about all kinds of outdated posts. Like 58.com, even if the car was sold in the market, I would call again to see if I could ask the car to go home. , and then call to ask if the next family is willing to sell. There is no gain.
On the second day of the Lunar New Year, I saw that there was a car sticker on the personal SUV section of the e family, and I contacted him immediately. The car was still there. I made an appointment with him on the phone, and he kindly said, no, you are too far away. Yes. I am willing to travel far to find the car I like! Leaving home at 7 o’clock that night, I got the key to her Shanghai home from a friend, and then I got on the highway alone. Fortunately, it was not far away, 700 kilometers, and arrived at 3 o’clock in the morning. I went into my friend’s house and fell asleep on the sofa. ..
My shameless little daughter, with M legs~
I was woken up by my little daughter at 7:00 in the morning to go to the big and small size. I contacted the Great Wall Chief at 8:00 and arrived at his location at 9:00. After a short lap, the chassis is not bad, and the paint has been touched up in some places, but the price is reasonable, and there is nothing to choose, but I always feel that this is not what I really want. So the two of us turned into chatting in the car, from car maintenance In Tibet, there are various driving habits, concepts, etc., and I hit it off very well, making a friend is not in vain for this trip! Farewell at 12:30 noon. Before leaving, the Great Wall Chief invited me to dinner, but declined! Wouldn’t it be better to help him save some money for a car! At 1:30 on the expressway back to Qingdao, I ran less than 150 kilometers. I couldn’t keep my eyelids open. I immediately parked in the service area, wrapped up my clothes and locked the door, and fell asleep. I fell asleep until 5:30, got up and continued on my way.
On the way, I contacted a car owner in Beijing, and made an appointment to go back to Beijing to see the car on the fourth day of junior high school. I returned to Qingdao at 10:30 in the evening, and fell asleep! I got up at 8:30 in the morning, ready to return to Beijing and then search for the car. Arrived in Beijing at 3:30 in the afternoon, but did not return I went directly to the owner of this car in Beijing. The previous description was “personal first-hand car, no major or minor accidents, and the chassis has been reinforced.” The photo he posted on the Internet is a Beijing brand. I think there should be no major problems. I can accept it, as long as it doesn’t hit the frame, I can accept it. Simply put, I can accept damage to all replaceable parts on the car, including the engine and gearbox. These can be repaired, and the car with a large beam I can accept shell damage and extrusion, as long as the beam is not injured, I can bear it, but this car is beyond my mental preparation.
I went to the location of the car that the owner said ahead of time. Before the owner came, I probably looked around. If you don’t see it, you don’t know, the world is really wonderful. The so-called chassis reinforcement is that square steel is welded under the middle frame, and the whole car is sprayed. The paint, the front of the vehicle has been completely restored, the engine has no untouched bolts, the “vehicle nameplate is in the car” (you get the idea), the driver’s side door creaks when opened. The owner said it was a relative’s car and later gave It has been in his hands for two years, because the index moved out and the family has other cars, so they have to sell it. I asked him if there was an accident in the front, and he said that he hit his cousin’s BMW and got on it. The chassis was intended to be modified in Xinjiang, but failed. After hearing this, I knew that the car had been in a serious accident. I was about to retreat.
I didn’t want to say this at first, but this car owner’s character is really bad, and there is a limit to bullshit. I can’t say a word of truth. I personally hate this kind of person the most. Go home from the West Third Ring Road, the traffic lights I stopped somewhere and looked through Moments, and saw her again, still looking lonely, I couldn’t bear it, I called the car dealer to see the car, the car dealer said, he is here, welcome at any time. After getting there, what to say Without saying anything, she walked directly to her place,
After careful inspection, the whole car has basic original paint, the engine compartment is clean and tidy, the left valve cover has been moved, the right side has not been moved, the bolts have not been screwed, the front of the car has no damage, the front and rear lights have been replaced, and a trailer bar has been added. There is no abnormality in the body structure. I got into the bottom of the car and looked at the chassis. There is no injury. The exhaust silencer has been replaced, and a tail throat has been added to the rear end! It can basically be regarded as the original original paint! I went to the car dealer to get the keys, and he accompanied me for a test drive. Once the car started, it was fine. It was in a very quiet state. I didn’t want to move the car when it was cold. When it falls around 500, the car starts to move, and there is actually a foreshadowing here! I went out and tried it for a while, and there is no problem overall. The chassis is in good condition, and the engine is also very powerful. So far, I am really excited! ! ! After running 20 kilometers, I returned to the original place. After parking, I wanted to try the transfer case. I pushed the gear hard, but it didn’t move, and it still didn’t move. , he couldn’t push it, and after a long time of exhaustion, he finally moved it. He tried neutral gear and vulgar gear, no problem, and the function is intact. The final conclusion is that the gear lever is stuck if it is not used for a long time!
Since I can move it, it doesn’t take much effort to switch it now. Now that there is nothing wrong with the traffic lights, I will move~~ park the car and enter the house, start bargaining without talking nonsense, and the final result is to sign the contract now, and the minimum payment is 4.6 , I hesitated for a while, the overall condition is good, but the color is not the most satisfactory black and the year is not 01, 02, others are acceptable. Although it is much higher than the original budget, these premiums are compared to those looking for a car in this condition The energy and expenses of the car are acceptable. So, I paid a 5K deposit and picked up the car tomorrow! (I couldn’t pick up the car that day, or I would pick it up on the same day.) The next morning I didn’t arrive at 8:00 I went to pay the balance and took her home! At this point, the preliminary car collection has come to an end.
Beautiful big butt, the damage on the right rear is the only place in the whole car, put it first, anyway, the plastic parts will not rust, and it will not affect the car inspection!
I’m gonna take the damn tow hitch off~~~
Exclusive for the little girl in the tail space~ The rear door support rod is estimated to be scrapped after another year of use~
The traces of the years, the layering of the primer and the surface paint are clearly visible~ the black is the adhesion of the adhesive strip, and there are corresponding traces on the rear adhesive strip. It can be seen that the tailgate adhesive strip still maintains its original appearance.
The air-conditioning compressor has been replaced, and the problem is not big. When it breaks, I will directly replace it with a new one from the original factory. The cabin is still relatively clean.
The modified headlights and tear-eye wires are messy and random, so I have time to arrange the wires later~
I replaced the Bridgestone tires when I was in office. Judging by the degree of wear and tear, it should not have run more than 10,000 kilometers. When I picked up the old PA, the original car had Bridgestone tires, and I was also drunk.
The terminal post is rusted, I bought a new one, and I will replace it when it arrives~~
The old car leather is so beautiful~
The original owner of the car changed the nose, just make do with it, and when it really started to move, he took out the original one and replaced it, but the protruding part is really disgusting, the left side of the steering wheel has added a reversing image on the original plastic part, I will also remove it later! Please ignore the white ashtray on it, I am an old smoker, although I just brought it for a day, the brand new ashtray is almost full.
It is very interesting that her account book, plus what I said at a glance, looks like six car owners. She entered the account on April 26, 2004. It was held by an IT company at the time, and it was transferred to another technology company in October of that year. The annual change was filed as an asset management company, followed by the transfer of personal ownership from 2016 to May 23, and then the second personal change on January 10, 2019 before the Chinese New Year. Based on my understanding of technology companies, those two IT companies should It is the two shells of one boss. The company may have transferred the assets for the purpose of transferring assets. The period is 6 months, and then it will be taken over by the asset management company in April 2016. It may be due to bankruptcy liquidation or other reasons, and it will be bought in May. I gave it to someone. In 2016, she was 12 years old. In that year, the owner drove the car for 3 years. It is estimated that it will have a shadow on the 2nd trial in 1 year. Therefore, it was sold in January 19. The last family is now a car dealer. After five, it will be under my name~~
Speaking of this, when I went to Shanghai, I found that Shanghainese drive well, put lights on the same line, and give way to the right if there is an express car behind, and the speed is much lower than the speed limit! Compared with my hometown Qingdao, I can only helplessly I shirk that the level of the driving school is too low~~ The car was transported to Beijing by the car dealer, and I will take her back to her mother’s house for a few days~~I will take her to Qingdao to settle down~ It should be said that the foreshadowing of picking her up was a test drive in Beijing yesterday After running 300 kilometers (the car in my hand will not move for a while before starting to move), when it reaches about 200 kilometers, the engine light is on. Take the simple OBD diagnostic instrument that comes with the car, connect it and read the fault code (below) ~P0159. The small problem of the test car will not appear immediately. It takes a period of time for the fault light to light up again, and the speed of the cold car will not drop for a while. It gives you the feeling that there is no problem with this car. Now it is hot When the car is idling, the tachometer shows about 200, but the actual speed is about 650 in the OBD, and the water temperature gauge is also low, but the actual computer data is 98 degrees, and the engine is running normally. The original left rear oxygen has been ordered. The sensor, after the Chinese New Year, when the shipment arrives, replace it by yourself~ The throttle valve has not been disassembled to see, and now during the Chinese New Year, you can’t buy cleaners everywhere, and everything will have to wait until the Chinese New Year is over before slowly cleaning up.
The on-board computer shows a combined fuel consumption of about 13.6, which is about half of the city and half of the highway for 350 kilometers (although the fuel consumption of the computer is only for reference, it can actually reflect the overall status of the car from some aspects), so it should be good, a lot Aging parts need to be replaced slowly! Gradually let her rejuvenate. I roughly check the various oil levels in the car, and after running for a while to see if there is any oil burning, oil leakage, and then decide where to move in the end~ After taking pictures, I will finish the account after a while It will be changed when it lands in Qingdao, so there is no need to cover it! To sum it up in one sentence, the crowd searched for her thousands of times, but she was in a dimly lit place! OK, let’s end this post~
This kind of simple OBD Taobao is everywhere, don’t ask me where I bought it!
Attached is a small advertisement: Due to my obsessive-compulsive disorder, I still need to receive a 01 or 02 Grand Cherokee 4.7 with the same vehicle condition and complete procedures. It is not needed after 2002. It is black. It is required that the plain car has no modification, off-road history, and you can negotiate the price after seeing the car. Some friends can send private messages to contact you until you receive it! Thanks!
