To make a long story short my uncle towed it in over a timing belt. They let him have it, cheap. And i got it for the scrap from a very worn ouT XT.
one belt and a quart ATF (to stop the ticking), and I have a new daily driver.

Haven't been on here much. The new mobile site is interesting.
Thanks for the replies. I almost feel bad for the previous owners... but I guess knowledge is power in this case. I had it diagnosed and repaired in a matter of a couple hours.

Just from the pic, it would be consider as showroom new in these parts. Really doesn't look bad at all from that angle.

Okay. So I'm at a bit of a dead end with the "sedamn"
It still has the tick but I'm okay with it... ill get it eventually.
But it has a CEL and I am not sure if it has the same check process as the XT. The other issue is it seems to like gasoline a lot more than the xt. Are spfi cars less fuel efficient? I have like no experience with the throttle injectio... should I rebuld the TB? How do I know it needs rebuilt?
Thanks.

Should do pretty good on gas. Give it a proper time up. Check timing. Get the tick taken care of. I routinely get 450 miles to a tank highway in my carbie 87 5 speed. Oh and new fuel couldn't hurt.

Fuel filter looks new, but i am going to replace it.
Found the codes list for 87+ spfi cars today so now i know what I'm looking for.

So it's all ready! Tick has been all gone for a bit now and fuel mileage is improved with the CEL off. (even if it's a cheat)
Oh and the freaking AC works! Next thing i want to do is fix the sloppy shifter and put in a CD player with AUX port. (so i can listen to my nerdy podcasts without an fm transmitter)
Soon i will post my 88 xt that is getting an EJ (hopefully frankenmotor) now that I'm not daily diving it.

You can't see me, so I'll tell you...I'm drooling right now.

 

Also: don't worry too much about the tick, that's normal on the EA82. It can be gotten rid of but it's not the end of the world. Do a search for it, lots of discussion on the board. Just have fun with it!

Epic fail..... I put on my cam tower, timed the belts and disty and cranked her up. well... It puked oil all out the bottom... So I'll be tying again soon. I really need to fix this so i can fix the oil leaks on the XT. Ieither didn't clean well enough or didn't use enough sealant.
