This is what I've done. or... WyTF is my 'lude doing this?

Bought a 98SH on Valentine's Day. This is my maintenance log...

  • 14FEB11 - Purchase 158240m - CEL, ATTS light, Maintenance light-G
  • 17FEB11 - 158320 m. Direct line fuel injector clean, replace plugs Autolite Platinum HP, adjust clutch hydraulic push rod, correct timing, Check cylinder compression, Cyl 1-2, 90PSI, Cyl 3,4 120PSI.
  • 18FEB11 - Check oil - full, 5k miles since change, partial detail interior.
  • 22FEB11 - 158430 m. Oil Change - visually inspectec Cam Case - very clean. Observed very large hole in intake hose
  • 23FEB11 - 158439 m. Replace: PCV valve, D Cap and rotor, fuel filter, O2 sensors, valve cover gasket. Clean: Throttle body, cat converter. Valve adjustment, fiirll clutch fluid 20%
  • 5MAR11 - 158691 m. Clean thermostat housing, repair inake hose with silicon, flush radiator, run Blue Devil cooling system sealant
  • 8MAR11 Re-run other half quart of Blue Devil cooling system sealant.
  • 10MAR11 - 158832 m. Replace thermostat gasket, re-install thermostat.
  • 16MAR11 - 158944 m. Replace fuel pressure regulator, clean/resurface EGR valve, replace radiator cap, End of Day mileage 159000 m.
  • 17MAR11 - 159022 m. Clean MAF sensor, flush radiator.

Ok, so I got the thing smogged illegally and registered yesterday, so the check engine light is still on, and the maintenance light is still lit up, but green. Next major fix has to be clutch plate/resurface flywheel. Still blowing white smoke intermittently, but not bad. The problem that bothers me the most is that when the car is cold, the throttle is responsive and pick-up is good, and when the car is warm, all that power just goes away. I'm thinking about just shelling out and having the head gasket replaced, and replacing timing belt, tensioner and water pump while in there. Also valve seats couldn't hurt.

I want to rebuild the engine before I get to 200K miles anyway, so I was hesistant to want to replace the HG, or at least paying for it.

Looks good to me man. Although that's all maintence, it'll be worth it in the end to have a pristine engine.

If your engine has 90psi of compression in 2 cylinders, and 120psi in the other two that is a problem. You most likely need piston rings replaced, and valve seats cleaned/resurfaced. That is where your smoke is coming from. Head gasket is going to be done when pistons are pulled. Timing belt/tensioner at same time.

Time to pull engine and freshen it up, or JDM replacement.
