I am less of an expert, than the worst expert.. What 5953 is saying may be it.
Have a 1990 Mits. pickup in the driveway.. Just got over 200,000 miles on the little damn sewing machine that got 38 miles too the gallon..
I was out of town and the girlfriend took it too Daytona to pick up her mother.
Engine temp light came on.. Steam coming out of the hood..
So she did what a proper Woman driver should do, sorry Women members.
She kept driving to bring it home, so I could check the problem..
Not sure on yours, but like 5953 is saying. Mine calls for a timing belt change every 70 thousand..
Also look at a manual.. My, blown up truck, has a computer board under the glove compartment box.. Not sure on yours..
That goes bad, it aint going nowhere.. Mine did. Used to be $1,300 out of Canada..
Now a guy in Orlando here re-builds them for $300.. I could probably get you one for $150 if the guy is still around..
Hell check if the one from my truck will work, you can have it..
Damn I loved that little soup can.. Girlfriend keeps begging me to get rid of it.
We pulled it on the front lawn, put an old toilet in the back and planted flowers..
Then I bought her a barley used Chevy Silverado, $30,000 truck with all the fixens. I hope she learned her lesson.
