Yep (2) 3100'* was enough for me....I took the dogbones off and wedged a 2x4 behind there and I pulled ! ...I forget what I levered it on...but it worked!

I am not saying their bad motors either. When picked the car up looked at the dipstick nothing. Put oil and do 3000 mile oil change drove the car for another 14,000. Motor sound good it was the only thing that sounded good on that car.

For some reason the notorious 3100 lifter tap doesn't settle well with me...

My wife has a '99 century. It burns oil, and I think that there is some hairpin hole or something 'cause the dexcool goes down slowly, but isn't in the oil.

I only have maybe 70K or so on it too....
