  1. Hello Everyone, My name is Steve and here we have a simple 850 T-5 Wagon thread. I have 2 teenage sons and this car will serve as my work car and most likely land into my 14 year olds hands when he can drive. The goal is for him to learn to turn a wrench and maintain a car during that time too. I spent a few months trying to find a 240 wagon and even a BMW wagon before going with this 850. The good is the car runs very solid and appears to not have many issues. The engine runs solid, transmission shifts good, etc. The suspension is a mess. I get some shaking/shimmy after 70mph and I feel every bump. The first round of parts have been ordered. Over the next few weeks here is what the Wagon will have done. New Ignition coil, wires, plugs, distributor cap/rotor Oil change/Fuel filter Vacuum hoses, Vacuum tree, Fuel Injector O-rings DIY cold air intake New front struts & rear shocks New Motor mounts, tie rods, etc. New tires There could be some Plasti dip coming soon to. The plan is to get the car driving nice and good again. I plan to get the engine checked out at a local shop this week. Get a full scan done and get the current miles from the computer. Then I can figure out when I will need to do the timing belt. I will also have them check cylinder compression, coolant system, etc This is not a show car and I am really trying to focus on DIY and bang for your buck.
