My wife had this car fall in her lap, little old lady single owner with 49k miles on when she bought it. We replaced the distributor, plugs, wires, battery, alternator and crankshaft sensor. There was oil from a leaky valve cover gasket that was scheduled to be replaced. It has a rough idle that initially was thought would go away after the valve cover gasket and necessary intake manifold removal and replacement. When my mechanic got the car to do the work after about a month he noticed that it seemed to be idling a little rougher than it should and did a compression test and found #3 to be low. He expects it to be a burned valve because the cam isn’t noisy. He advised me not to put another cent into it and move on to another car.
This car otherwise is in good shape with 60k miles. If anybody has any interest in purchasing please feel free to contact me.
