Down here (NC) we call those black rat or just black snake. The black racers are much more slender and also very nervous. The black snakes are calm, often to the point you can pick them up and move them without a problem.Love those black racers. They keep the rodent population in check around my neck of the woods as well.
Well, I don't have any records, so the only info I have is what was reported on Carfax, unfortunately. It appears to have received routine maintenance and repairs at the dealer up until around 2019 and then they slacked off after that. Based on the nasty coolant and brake fluid I can confirm this. If someone can tell me if/where the VIN is located on the transmission I can double check, but I don't see anything about replacing the transmission. The valve body was replaced by the car dealer I bought it from at around 234K. I actually have about 236K on it now. If that was the first valve body replacement, then that would be amazing, based on what I've read. I do see some misc "vehicle serviced" at a dealer here and there, so you never know. Also, I don't see anything about headgaskets listed either, but you never know. The only recent stuff I see are control arms and front struts at 210K (08/19), spark plugs at 213K (10/19), and O2 sensor at 214K (10/19). It looks like they donated it in 12/20 so I'm guessing the valve body was the last straw for them.Wow. That's impressive mileage.
Do you know much of the service history of the car?
Most curious if it has the original headgaskets and CVT.
Super easy and I don’t even think you need any tools besides drilling the hole. That top trim panel can be yanked off, and the little rubber tube can be pulled out of the sheet metal on both ends so you can easily feed the camera wire through.Thanks for pointing that out. Good Idea I'll do the same.
