1987 Turbo Coupe couple of questions
I just bought a 87 Turbo Coupe with 105,000 miles on it and it has a few problems, I hear what appears to be bottom end rattle, not real bad but it bothers me...is this normal for a engine with 105,000 on it and is it serious of will the engine just keep going like the 5.0 I had some years back, it had bottom end knock and I could not kill that engine, ran like that for five years and I sold it and it still ran good except for the knock.
Question two, the idle surges and every now and then dies, I think this is a common problem of these 2.3L, just don't know what the fix is, I cleaned the IAC and it didn't look dirty or gummed up or is this surging caused by a vacuum line, I don't see any off anywhere.
