It's the most temperamental piece of shit car ever. I can't even set the bloody base idle on the ****en thing, but that's another problem. I've had so many "after-problems" with the thing it aint funny. I replaced the front suspension, now I get a creak and a wheel bearing noise. I replace the rear suspension and now the trailing arms are all chewed out and need replacing. I replace the manifold and now all this other shit is popping up.
I don't think I can get help with my dilemma anywhere else but in this forum so I'll start from the start.
I ended up replacing the CFI manifold and gas system with some MPI stuff I had sitting in the garage. I used a MPI loom, no injection stuff (injectors or rail) and didn't wire up the gas system ECU (still in my old car, waiting on SPRINTEA to get it out for me
Anyways, it all got down sweet. Then I went for a drive and the temperature sky rocketed to the scary side of the gauge. So now I'm getting freaked out and will do anything to get it going right for GOR. Doug suggests I get a new radiator, so off I go to Pick a Part and I get a near new radiator and clutch fan (yeah I bought a clutch fan..how sad).
I come home from work at 11, fit it all and go to fill up with water and I start getting sprayed with a unknown substance, grab a torch and find it's trans fluid. Send that shit down to forensics, bye bye GOR.
Aight so now it's all fixed. As a extra precaution I rip out my thermostat. Who needs a thermostat lol. Annnyyways, now my dilemma. In the hot weather if it's in, I'm 99% sure it'll over heat again even with the changed radiator. Now in the cold weather it's freezing the converter up. So what do I do ****en? I got no idea. Am I going to have to keep a 15 mill socket and a thermostat in the boot from now on? What should I do!!!!!
How do I know if the water pump is stuffed as well, without pulling the whole mofo out? I replaced one on a wreck I bought in April, that was **** job.
Anyways...soz for the long post. It feels like I'm just pushin' shit up hill with the thing these days.
I'll get some pics later, it looks pretty sick with out all that extra shit crouding the engine bay. I got proper injector hole plugs from AUZGAS so it looks all neat. I really need to get the proper computer happening for the gas mixer to work right *hint* SPRINTEA *hint* lol.
