Well the engine in my car decided to take a shit today. Was coming back from picking up my pay check pulled out on the highway and she ran like never before then about 3500-4000 rpm she slowly started getting tired and then boosh smoke just rolled into the interior of my car so i shifted it into neutral and she died, i pulled the plugs and every one of them had oil dripping off of them... My guess is the rings... I guess it is time for a rebuild seeing as how i still owe a little under two grand on the car....
On the good side of things the engine will be getting high compression, port and polished heads and intake, and of corse a nice bath so when she goes back in i can go ooohhh ahhh!
dat dat be all folks!
I'll have pictures of my pretty intake up here soon, and keep your ears and eyes open for my 3.5L rebuild!
Bad news, in a way. Good news that you get to rebuild her, bigger and better than before. You look to have enough into the car to make an engine worth while. I kinda wish i would have kept my 1st gen and done a 3.5L HO swap into her. Keep us posted!
I might be jumping the gun just a tad bit early on declaring that the engine popped. I've had two people tell me that it could be that the PVC system was clogged and blowing oil out the valve cover (last night) and i put the intake back on to keep it off the exhaust which could have sucked the oil threw the intake system and flooded the pistons with oil. It wouldn't blow much oil out at all at low rpm but once i hit higher rpms it would blow a lot of oil out, and this is what happened i got in the higher rpms and it started to just go blah!
Well I pulled the plenum off changed the PVC valve, and cleaned all the gunk out of every where else. I put it all back together with new gaskets and hooked it all up with new vacuum lines and went to start it.................. Well it didn't start just set there and cranked and cranked It has compression i stuffed a paper towel down in the spark plug tubes and it blew it out of there with ease, the spark plugs aren't covered in oil only gas now... I'm stuck once again, only thing i can think of is that maybe my plugs are bad after soaking in oil for two days strait...
Shouldn't really affect the plugs too much, but you could clean them good with varsol, then dry with a propane torch (don't go nuts, just dry and burn off any residue).
Also try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes if you already haven,t, in case the ECM needs to be reset, if is shut down due to the engine "failure"
I had the battery unhooked for all last night had half the day yesterday, i hooked it back up to get to my tools before i took of the plenum and i left it hooked up when i pulled it.. The car just acts like it has no fire... It has smoke coming from some where i'm not sure where exactly I'm thinking the exhaust...
