Default My 86 Roadtrek

I have 86 roadtrek limited edition with 318 engine 120,000 miles, new transmission, new front end ect. I am solo with my dog and want to head south for the winter from N Idaho. Is it easy to find repair shops that know about this engine in case something happens.

Any mechanic over the age of 30 should know a 318 (5.2L) inside and out. If they don't, run far away... screaming.

Find a mechanic over 40 and they would probably be more than happy to work on your engine blindfolded as they are simple, robust and parts are cheap and plentiful.

Thank you. I love this van and with new transmission and all I hope I get lots of years with it. The inside is beautiful.
