      This. Carbed, air-cooled, single cylinder 2 stroke is about the most simple you can get.

      an old Honda Accord or . Despite having 1 cylinder, lawnmowers are absolute c**ts to work on.

      My 91 and 92 Blazers were kind of c**ts to work on for some things.

      KIND OF??? Those things are absolute fricking b***hes to do anything on. Dude, bury spark plugs under the exhaust manis, lmao. Alternator wiring routed over the exhaust, *jumps timing in your path*

    all old trucks pre-1999. i would say miatas but the engine bay is a bit tight in some spots. plus it kills your fricking back hunching over a 2ft tall car. there is never a shortage of space on older trucks THOUGH.

      pre-LS small blocks from the 90s had the most moronic vacuum lines and wiring harnesses on them. They're easy if all that has been replaced and retrofitted with better stuff but factory wiring and all that is a nightmare once it gets brittle

    Were gmt400 headlights ever clear or did they just come hazed like that? I'm starting to truly believe they were never clear, I have never seen otherwise

    I would consider them the easiest simply because they have the most basic and durable engine design, a push rod V8 with timing chain. Everything is easily accessible, the distributor can be a pain with the 5.7, but is entirely accessible

      All the V8 options had the same distributor placement.

    My generalized biased opinion from my experiences as follows:

    >Easy tier
    Anything pre-chrysler Jeep (CJ, J-Series, Wagoner) and YJ
    Any big 3 trucks ~1990 and earlier, especially Chevy C/K series
    Toyota Pickups T100 and earlier, 4runners first, second and third gens
    GM A, B, G, and most W bodies (very late W's are arguable)

    >Moderate Tier
    Jeep XJ/MJ/TJ/JK/KL
    Post-1990's big 3 pickups
    Post Toyota T100, first gen Tundras, fourth gen and later 4runners
    Early Ford Taurus and foxbodies
    Mazda CX3/5/50's
    Motorcycles in general
    Nissan/Datsun (well, early mini-trucks in general including Chevy Luv and Ford Courier too)
    Honda sedans/hatchbacks, notably CRX/Civic and Accord
    Dodge small pickup platform (Dakota/Durango)
    Anything Packard (wildcard)

    >Frick everything tier
    Anything post 2000's VW
    Anything BMW
    Anything Audi
    Anything with a Ford 6.0L diesel
    Anything in a van chassis
    Anything in a minivan chassis

      What do you mean pre Chrysler jeep? The jeep XJs are the easiest and possibly the best jeeps ever made, gay

        I own a 92 XJ gaylord, as well as a 1976 CJ7. I also owned a MJ, and a J20.

        For XJ/MJ's:
        >4.0L engine is shoehorned into a grossly undersized engine bay, making anything on the the engine a pain in the ass to work on if it isn't immediately on top (mechanical fan clutch, exhaust manifold, and engine crank sensors come to mind). Oil filters are a pain in the ass with the 90 degree adapter.
        >In the 4.0L, lifter failure is common and requires removal of the entire cylinder head to access them, something I can't say for any other pushrod engine. The aft most to cylinder head bolts touch the firewall, meaning they say with the head during removal/installation.
        >Wiring is questionable in numerous locations, namely in the dash. Mix-n-match of a ton of different brands of connectors.
        >Anything internal to the heater core / evaporator requires the entire removal of the dash.
        >Removal of the oil pan gasket requires disconnecting the entire front axle in order to drop it low enough to clear.
        >Engine mounts require a prayer and the longest crowbar you own to shimmy into place, and a mix of no less than two jacks to adjust the engine into the proper position to get the bolt holes to line up.
        >Renix and OBDI systems have an extremely rudimentary trouble codes, usually requiring intensely diagnosing or loading the parts cannon .
        >Half-assed antilock brake system sucks donkey nuts and it's generally easier to just remove the relay to disable the system than repair.
        >Captured nuts EVERYWHERE on the underside of the unibody that usually spin out / strip out on the second use.
        >Unit bearings; making an afternoon job an all day event with inferior parts. Need I say more?
        >Hybrid mix of imperial, metric, and torx requires a robust toolset and frequent tool changes to do one job.

        Don't get me wrong, I love the XJ/MJ platform, and the build quality is generally great. But it's not the easiest platform to work on by any stretch of the imagination.

          The best thing about the XJ is something is always wrong with it making for a great learning experience. If these things weren't so much fun to drive I would have junked mine awhile ago.

    Almost any NA Japanese I4 from the 90s. The engine bays are mostly empty space, everything is accessible, the bolts/nuts are the same sizes, and everything is well-documented.
    GMT400s aren't bad either, but those 90s jap shitboxes are (usually) almost pleasurable to work on.

    Depends on what you're good at. If you're good with mechanical stuff an old truck is best. If you want the vehicular equivalent of Legos, it's a Toyota hybrid. If you're poor, the smallest car is easiest to work on.

    I owned this as my first car, its a bootleg mitsubishi lancer that some malaysian company bought the license to. Cant remember what engine was in it exactly but the engine bay was so empty that you could stick your arm through it and touch the ground/bottom side of the engine

        Wow, it doesn't get too much simpler than that. And it doesn't have a massive array of vacuum lines that a lot of carbed engines had in that era. Not bad.

    working on Japanese cars kinda sucks, the way they do stuff varies a lot and they tend to not share parts from car to car
    American cars are just made from parts bins where they will use one axle in like 100 different trucks and cars, or one alternator in 100 different trucks or cars, jap shit they tend to make one specific part for one car and it doesn't get shared among all the others
    makes it really hard to find parts you need and you end up having to special order parts online instead of being able to get them locally which is really annoying

    You just posted it. Those old GM trucks are easy to find parts for too. Though I own a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 and those are easy to work on too. And Ford, Toyota, Nissan, etc...
