Billy :

Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.

Billy :

MY apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Billy :

Does it have the fuel injection engine, or the carburettor? (is it the spider veloce or spider i.e., or spider)?

Customer:

As the bosh fuel injection. It is a Spider

Customer:

the car come from Texas

Billy :

ok... so we have the bosch fuel injection (L-jetronic), and CIS ignition (both very reliable).

Billy :

You should check the vehicle for rust, around the roof, and behind the wheel arches... if you have rust there, it will cost you some body work and repair...

Billy :

then check the engine bay for cleanliness, leaky oil, coolant or any leaky air tubes.

Billy :

Then, turn the engine on, it should fire instantly, listen for any odd noises in engine bay while waiting for it to warm up (any rattles, knocking etc...),

Billy :

Then have someone depress the accelerator a few times, and check for any oil vapors at exhaust.

Billy :

And open the oil cap, check the oil, level, and look inside the oil cap, you should see shiny engine parts, and not sludge and black mudd.

Billy :

If these check out, drive the vehicle a bit, check the braking power, the acceleration (any lags while accelerating), and gear changes.... and listen for any odd noises (loud humming from the transmission or differential).

Billy :

IF you have any suspension knocks, that should be relatively easy and cheap to fix (shocks, ball joints etc...)

Billy :

Get back to me having tested it, with more details, or if further info is needed.

Billy :


Thank you for your trust! Get back to me if you need more info...Thank you in advance for the positive rating...
