Default On motor number 2 now

Some of you may or may not know that I blew my original motor (spun the bearings and it was easier to replace the motor than rebuild it).

The new JY motor is in and running like a charm.

I guess the real question is how quickly do you get used to the motor not being the original?

I guess it kinda still bother me that the motor is not the same as before, I understand that what is important is the car itself, not the motor..

I don't like telling other people that I have a second motor in there because it makes it look unreliable....

Agreed... Don't tell them...

Give the Motor time before you give it too much abuse... Let it work back in and feel its way around...

In time you will gain more trust int he motor... Mine is 8000+ miles and still going good.. Worst mileage I have gotten out of this motor was 19.... And I had to work to get that... Usually its 21Mpg... If I let my Mother drive it for a week its 23 Mpg

I'm on engine number 3. Number 2 caught fire. Replaced it under warranty (from the recycler I bought it from.) I've put at least 60,000 miles on number 3 and it still runs like a champ

I haven't beat it up yet, the highest it saw was just under 4 grand and that was a gradual acceleration instead of stomping the gas.

It hasn't leaked oil or coolant. My original leaked oil. So I'm happy with the second motor.

I alway expected the transmission to go first...

According to the previous owner of my 94, I'm on engine block #2 and a rebuild on that one. Probably about 100,000 miles on this newest engine. I don't bother telling many people that I'm on this engine configuration. I just say I have a 292K mile car!

I'm really glad you decided to keep the car, Cody. Way to go!
