HI just bought this car (94 loyale, AWD, spfi, 5 speed, ea82) thinking it was misfiring due to the old gas since it had been sitting. turns out It had someone working on it who failed to double check his rocker arms after he put the cam tower back on (at least I hope there is no reason it would do that on its own).
just got that back together and I'll be finishing it up and testing it tonight. Hopefully I have a new car and not a $1000 paper weight.
But I have a few questions I cant seem to find answers to. When not in AWD is it FWD or RWD? I'm guessing fwd like the brat but I dunno.
IS there any reason (other than a bad repair job) that the rocker arm would come loose and be sitting in the cam tower undamaged? Do I need to worry about this happening again?
HOw do I flash codes if the check engine light is on?
even after I get it back to running I gotta hope the thing wasn't driven like this and has damaged the rings. Cross your fingers for me.
