Started my UIM LIM teardown today. (95 SE N/A, 152,000 miles)
Good thing I did, my lowers were WASTED. Very brittle, particularly in the middle of each. Almost fell apart upon removal, but got it all clean.
The good news is I didnt find any coolant in the lifter valley, just a little dirty/greasy.
Hopefully Ill be ok with just a cleanup and LIM gaskets/UIM replacement.
My upper looked ok, until I poked around the EGR area. The coolant tabs (added by former owner, as I never used them)worked well, but I scraped a little and I found daylight. I think it could be sleeved though, as the only damage I can find is inside EGR hole.
TB was nasty as well, needed a good cleaning. Took care of that, good to go now.
IAC area was super nasty!!!!
Went pretty easy, just took my time, about a half a day, with plenty of breaks..
I did snap a stud off on the back exhaust manifold flange, I guess Ill have to fix that too!!!
Just drill it out and replace right???
Ill post some pics if I can borrow a camera.
Thanks for the help and how-tos. The info really helps!!!
