Should I consider buying a '86 Dodge Colt Vista? I've had the Vista Wagon with Mitsubishi engine, manual transmission, and loved it. I haven't looked at the car yet, but am I asking for MAJOR trouble?

It is 24 years old and you might have trouble locating parts if you need to repair it. I would tell you for the right price any car can be a deal but you may spend more then it's worth if you are walking instead of driving.

Interesting i have a chariot in Kenya just had an engine overhaul, however i am considering a complete engine change any ideas where i can get a new engine or an engine i can interchange


Chariot (aka was in three generations, each with multiple choices of engine. Mitsubishi Space Wagon, Mitsubishi Nimbus and Mitsubishi Expo, Dodge and Plymouth Colt Vista Wagon, Eagle Vista Wagon, Hyundai Santamo and Mitsubishi Savrin
Be careful to get the right engine for your vehicle.
You can try Powertrain Products, remanufactured engines, they may ship to Kenya and have good prices. (not sure why you want to swap an overhauled engine for another one, but that's your business.)

We have a 1986 Dodge Colt Vista Wagon runs but won't move.


It sounds as if the seals have cracked or broken. Depending on how long it sat, and the service history, it may be very hard to do anything but have it inspected for pressure to determine that, at a transmission shop.

I would suggest seeing if you can get a free estimate, hopefully, a low cost tow.

You may start looking for an imported Japanese transmission to replace it, usually those come with a warranty and are much less expensive even with shipping, than having one rebuilt.

Of course, then there's the longevity issue, newly rebuilt should last years and provide a good return on the investment if the rest of the car is worth that much of an investment.

I will warn you, the newer fuel systems are designed to handle the fuel that will soon be used across the country. I don't know how long, but before long the older cars will have to be retrofitted with new fuel pumps, lines, hoses, and other fuel related parts due to the increased ethanol/methanol and additives. I just sold my 94 Stealth and that was definitely a consideration for me as it's expensive to change those items out for new ones made with newly designed seals.
good luck
