So, you will have issues with a car that old. Second, instead of taking it to the dealer, you try and fix it yourself, and come to the forums to do so. Same thing with Birds, or anything that old for that matter. Even a 25-30 year old needs maintenance, especially if things haven't been done, there's going to be lots more problems to solve than not.
Yes, I know that well, my 26 yo wife requires lots of maintanance....
