My lord, why have I been cursed. Not more than 4 days purchasing the car and engine is done.

I have never done anything bad to anyone for karma to hit me like this. I dont understand how the world works sometimes.

I bought it for 1350, how much could I sell for "AS IS"?

Interior is in very good condition and paint outside still in good condition.

Right now I'm sure you have metal in the oil, look close, bet you see the glitter. Sorry, thicker oil wont do it. The bearing is eating it'* self and will only get worse.

Is this a subercharged engine of the standard NA engine?

Most people don't want a car that needs a new engine, unless it'* someone that works on them all the time.

Are you handy with tools? Doing the work will save a ton. Otherwise, where are you located, might be near a member that can help replace the engine.

I am located in California, LA area.

Unfortunately, I am not handy with tools.

There is no glitter in oil. No metal flakes. Looks normal, I had my neighbor look at it too and says oil smells and looks normal.


I'll be posting it on craiglist today and seem what type of offers I get. I still haven't even received my new title yet. Hopefully it should be in the mail by this week.

There is a magnet on the oil plug, it will collect metal until it'* full.

Called the guy who sold it to me. He said only problem he had with it before was the engine vibrated. He took it to mechanic and had valve hose replaced which fixed the vibration.

I sent him link of car noise and he taking it to the mechanic he had the car fixed at.
