Picked up a 90 Loyale SW, 5spd, 4wd earlier this year for a few hundred bucks.
Is has 198829 miles and was suffering from the TOD. I drove the car prior to purchase, but only up in to fourth due to the area. Everything worked and it ran just fine.
Upon getting the bru home I proceeded to perform the following:
Pulled the engine and replaced the front crank seal, rear crank seal, and cam seals.
Re-installed the HLA's so that the oil inlet orifice was correctly oriented.
Converted the power steering to manual and removed the pump and associated lines.
Replaced the timing belts and tensioners; discarded the belt covers.
Replaced the oil seal and mickey gasket.
New water-pump, cap & rotor, plugs and wires, clutch assembly, EGR Solenoid, Purge Solenoid.
Timing set at 20 degrees BTC.
Idles +/- 700 rpm
No Codes (cleared by replacing the two solenoids mentioned above)
It starts and idles, though will backfire through the intake when depressing the accelerator.
When engaged into gear, totally bogs down when the clutch is let out normally and will not go.
If I gas it up in the rpms and dump the clutch, it burns rubber but only briefly and bogs down.
i have checked the TPS; both for measured adjusted and electrically-okay
I have measured the Air Valve and MAF and both are coming back in tolerance.
What am I missing?
