Just got a beater Frontier

Hey, everyone. Today I'm picking up a beater 2001 Frontier for my son, who's currently a senior in HS. She's got 144k miles and needs some maintenance work:
Valve cover leak
Power steering leak
Possible Leak between the transmission and engine
New tires

Fortunately, this is all stuff I can manage and it'll be a great learning experience for my boy.

The previous owner had the truck for around 10 years, which is comforting to me when there's a good history between the owner and machine.

As far as me, I work on cars and motorcycles as a hobby but work in engineering, and I have an affinity for Toyotas, Nissan trucks, and Ducati and Honda motorcycles.

I'll attach pics of my rides later today

I got a 4 cyl, 5sp MT, extended cab. Simple little work horse.

Here are my current rides: a Tacoma with 6sp MT, Ducati Monster 1100, and a CB500X which I'll be riding up to Alaska this summer.

Ok, I'll look out for that. Thanks for the heads up. I plan on replacing all seals, hoses, and fluids soon.
