I'm in need of rebuilding my EA82 because it has LOW compression. (30-50psi on all cylinders) Billows out white smoke like crazy on cold mornings. and it's slowly losing coolant.
I get 32city/50high-way MPG out of it. thats why I'm rebuilding it for all you EA82 haters.
I still have to do a wet compression test to check the rings. If the rings are bad. I want to hone the walls. But would you suggest getting rings and pistons? or just rings? I'll also get main bearings, piston pin bushings and rod bearings.
I've been reading about gasket brands and what-not. And decided to go with OEM Subaru gaskets/seals. Getting a kit from dealership for $282 includes everything except metal parts.
I'm gonna get the bypass valve springs.
Lifters from Mizpah. Got the TOD
new thermostat, water pump and do a radiator flush.
I have already done the oil pump seals. Still no oil pressure at idle. a little under 10psi per 1000RPMs
anything else you guys can think of?
Thank you in advance!!!
It's in a 1993 Loyale M/T SPFI with 243,000 on it.
