    I agree with dcuhpw, current pricing is rather high. I've been watching Craigslist daily for another 1500 engine and I think $4K would be right in line with what I've been seeing.

    Welcome aboard rjsdaman2!

    Looks like the oil pressure sensor wire to me. The oil pressure sensor is above the oil filter, right front side of the engine below the intake manifold.

    Many of these things have NEVER been greased since new. On those, the grease has probably hardened inside the hose. Best thing to do if you're not sure if it's been serviced is to remove the hose...

    I removed that hoses on my LXs the first time, but it didn't take long to realize that doing this annually would damage the hose. I ended up just flushing it with antifreeze the next time.

    Basic chemistry, when you burn gasoline, you're mixing C8-H18 (or something near that) with O2. This results in CO2 and H2O, i.e. water vapor. Hello!

    I haven't really studied how the cooling system in these things work. That said, if you look in the owner's manual, you'll see instructions to remove the hose at the low point in the system to...

    He said that it was the first problem that he'd had in the 5 years he's had it, so I would guess that it's a 2015. I believe he said that the bilge pump was factory installed, but I wouldn't swear...

    Actually, your write-ups are fine. I think I get confused on which project you're working on.

    No need to turn it on it's side. 4 nuts on the back, and 2 screws that go up through the ride plate, along with associated hoses and cables.

    Hopefully it will come off without a fight.
