They usually just cause a lean code and still drive well. Check that coil though, they usually dont give much warning, and just go dead on a cyl.Looks pretty clean down the oil fill hole, Thought about having GM cover the Valve Cover If/When the PCV fails as it's covered 'til 120,000 miles.......Though failures rarely happen at convenient times.
Are you saying what I did was unethical.....I don't think the seller cared & just wanted the car gone, But I wasn't about to rub his nose in the fact it was a simple repair.
Hey, those fuses look very similar to what’s used in car audio for amp arrays if in-line fuses aren’t cutting the mustard.
Also, nice score as well.
Once the deal is done, as long as the seller agrees to the car being worked on then and there, it's done. You don't owe it to the seller to diagnose the car, and for all he knew something else might have been catastrophically wrong without being able to test drive it. If you offer something as is, that goes both ways.If you made the seller aware of how simple the repair was, and they sold it with that knowledge, then no.

I own a Auto Repair Garage & pride myself on being as ethical as possible, But I wasn't there in that capacity....Just a father trying to get the best car I could for my dollar.
I missed that detail in your first post. Please accept my apology for questioning your ethics.I do recall that. Someone trusting me to work on a vehicle at a professional level & not rip them off is different than me giving someone their ASKING price for a used vehicle that's been sitting for 2 years.....That I can't test drive & could have turned out to be a real turd.
That was a risk on my part as I paid for the car BEFORE I repaired it enough to get it home & still needs a plethora of repairs before I would consider it roadworthy.
I'm afraid I don't share your lack of sympathy. It's a matter of questionable ethics.
As he mentioned earlier, he bought the car as is and managed it fix it easily. As the saying goes, he has a very particular set of skills. Skills he has acquired over a very long career. You don't expect people to give that away for free.
