I fixed the clutch problem, it just needed to be bled, it had air in it, the fluid was black. The clutch isn't that great, it has 150k on it. I put the air intake in back by the exhaust manifold so it takes in warm air. Aired up the tires and drove it around for 29 miles and averaged 61 mpg in 30F degree weather. The CVJs are clicking a little. There were sunflower seeds in the air filter from a mouse. One ground strap to the engine was broken.
The engine compartment is dirty and rusty. The same mechanic that told them it needed a new clutch, and probably drained the fluid out, took off the inner fenders so all the road debris, salt spray, grit got in the engine compartment.
First mod will be to put on the fender shields and seal the engine compartment from the wheel wells. Then a belly pan.
