I have been doing a lot of reading since I bought it. Already changed idler and tensioner pulleys (the sound was horrible!), upper radiator hose(they changed the thermostat and broke the bleeding valve housing), and headlight washer pump. Next is the AC belt and tensioner, and maybe do the cooling system overhaul, although everything seems to be fine - no leaks and the plastic looks good.
