This piece of crap is driving me nuts
I am trying to fix up this piece of crap 94 LX 3.8L. It is a piece of crap.
It runs hot, and the elec fan is not engaging, and it has killed TWO radiators inside of a week. I can't figure it out. Maybe I just got a bad radiator the 2nd time?? But it leaked from the same spot, which is weird, or maybe that's just where fluid will leave the rad support, I don't know.
It still runs like crap, this thing.
It and its damned DIS ignition system. Seriously, the tach still acts ridiculous (Indicating 500-1700rpm, after that it drops to zero, and will sit there until the rpms drop real low again), and the car stumbles more than a eight month old trying to walk for the first time. It's freaking ridiculous. and it gets crappy fuel economy.
and it yields almost no vacuum... I had a hard time feeding this piece of crap Seafoam.
This car is really beginning to irritate me. Not even my SC was this big of a pain in the ass.
So yeah, I like, really need help with this piece of junk.
