The Original Synthetic Motor Oil

AMC Gremlin

This car has been out of service since 1989. As of this witting it had sat up for 17 years! There are challenges in getting it back into driveable condition after so many years of sitting up. Along with the obvious problems it has of sitting up and rusting away, this car still had all of the mechanical problems that caused it to be taken out of service. I found the cooling system completely clogged up with mega amounts of some sort of radiator stop leak. It had no coolant flow. The fuel tank was rusted through and fuel line completely clogged. Yet, after repairing the fuel tank and opening up the fuel line this car started and ran! And it was using the old mechanical fuel pump that was still on the motor! This car is a wonder to me. Glad to get it back into service.
