Default Advice on what to do with my 02 WRX?

Hey Guys,

Long time bug eye owner here trying to hold on to it but I think I'm facing the reality that it's time to move on with my 02 WRX stock. The engine is solid after replacing the valves and cylinder heads redone.

It has a really small radiator leak and oil pan leak. Not big leaks but need attention. There's that TGV sensor on the passenger side near the turbo which throws a CEL code.

At that point I was going to fix those problems but now the car won't start and it doesn't seem to be the battery so maybe starter?

My issue is that I don't know if I want to keep the car going anymore although I love the car. Not sure if I can get anything for it since it's not running right now.

Any advice on what you would do like maybe parting it out or just take any offers to get it off my hands?

It really depends on condition. I tried to get rid of a rusty 02 a few years ago and no one wanted any part of it. That car is currently a rallyx/beater and will be parted out in the spring. If it just needs a starter, the reman I have from AZ will be fs soon if you want.

No one will pay good money for a car that doesn't run/start at the time of purchase IMHO.

I also have a radiator fs

I added a few links to some pics I just took of it in my original post above. I couldn't figure out if it was possible to embed them but here's a few angles. Interior I didn't get a chance to take any but it's been preserved pretty well. You can't tell the car is almost 20 years old!

All of your issues are easy and quick fixes. You could fix all of that in a day pretty easy.

You really just need to decide if the car is for you or not.
