I thought these engines easily go to 300K.
I only have 84 k miles, luckily. The trans, I might as well swap in new one instead of just a rebuild mainly to valve body as the ole P1811 code is not good etc.
Anyways, back to the locking situation, I have thrown another dose of Wd-40 in there and pin slides easily back and forth now. Hopefully it hangs in there and wont need replacement.
I also checked in the trunk today. The cable and tag was ok and works, but I used some double side Velcro to hold it up and away on trunk liner. If it does not hold, I may just drill a small hole in the tag and use a safety pin to hold it onto the liner, so there is no possible way for it to get caught on crap in trunk, and possibly open the fuel door.
I have good compression numbers, and I just did the UIM/LIM, and a lot of other sensors, plugs/wires, but I really want a supercharger (must have Boost
), and a better platform to possibly mod a little in the future, maybe a future cam, valve, and spring upgrade.
I know I have a big C Body PA, but I still like to go fast!
