Default First Time Bull Owner

Hello Everyone,

As advertised, first time bull owner. Just purchased an '01 SES model in red with tan interior. Texas title but no previous inspection so I have to get a state inspection. Odometer reading 119k miles. The car has its issues but had a familiar mechanic take a look before buying. I am very pleased with the car's V6 engine and the interior, as the leather's in good condition and the performance is very sporty [compared to other cars I've owned like the Accord, Tercel, Cutlass, etc].

The instructions, diagnostics, and advice given on several of the threads regarding the emissions systems, i.e. EGR valve testing, DPFE replacement, P0401 codes, etc. have all been extremely useful and prompted me to at least register and say thank you.

So...Thank you.

Regards,

Bulls on Parade

Many thanks to the welcoming committee and pics to come soon...

Oh, and can I suggest adding a 'southwest' region to the dropdown list for the profiles? 'Southern' means 'Bama or 'Ssippi or roundabouts where I'm from...

Oooo, thought there was a southwest. Southeast is generally the "Bama" and such areas.

Regardless, welcome!
