Autoboxes tend to fail at 100,000 or less, if it hasnt been replaced, budget for a replacement soon. Ba;ance shaft tensioner, chains etc stretch and wear badly by 100,000, so make sure it is a reon engine, or budget to replace those also. Other than that just the normal 9000 things, lower hydraulic engine mounts, gearchange rubber, etc. "David Taylor" <> wrote in message > I'm going to look at a 1995 9000 CSE 2.3T with automatic transmission > tomorrow. > > I already have a '92 9000 2.0 T so know a number of things to look out > for. > > The car i'm going to see has 150,000 miles on the clock but the owner > claims has had a recon engine 60,000 miles ago.
