Have most of it figured out but its a 47 code which i didnt see on the list? Kind of confused by that and trying to figure out if itd be worth rebuilding the motor or getting a new and bigger one (cyl 1 and 8 low compression). Have all thr parts for it though some would need a little work, any input would be great. I can post pictures when i figure out how or send them directly.

Ahh alright, been trying to figure out what to do with the car, either fix it up or sell it as is, parents said theyd take 2500 for it and I've got no clue what its worth

in the rust belt for $2500 you get .... $2500 worth of rust

it's a no brainer buy it or move over!

Either pull the seats/carpet or crawl underneath, or best is both, to look for rust in the floors.
Entire passenger compartment, including the storage/spare tire area behind the seat.
Do NOT ask how I know this.Cry
My car came from California, and I have seen less rust in Ohio rustbuckets.

It was actually all in really good shape under the old carpet all around the interior, had one small area behind passenger side that would leak but that was repaired
