It could be a number of things. Not to sound condescending, but I am
guessing that you do not know a whole lot about car repair. Based on this,
I would think twice about buying a used vehicle with 197,000 miles on it. I
don't know how much you are paying, or even really how much knowledge, skill
and tools you have, but this does not sound like a good idea.
I am not awfull concerned with the mileage, as this will only be used around
town. As for the knowledge part. I dont do mechanics for a living, but I
think I know my way around a car. :)
Just dont want to start replacing parts that dont actually fix the problem.
