There's plenty more to check but that stands out lately.My '87-89 cars have been great.SPFI is simple and efficient enough.
Good luck with it.

Check for any service records - Tbelt especially.
Look at the CV axles and see if the boots are torn up.
Check engine light on? Read the codes and see what the computer is unhappy about.

I don't know if that old of EA82's had chronic problems, but my '91 SPFI EA82 has a cracked head, which I understand is not uncommon. Pull the plugs after it's been good and hot and look for steam coming from the cylinders. Check the plug ends to see if they're too clean. Smell the exhaust - burning coolant will smell sweet. These symptoms could also indicate a leaking intake manifold gasket. Oil in the coolant is a telltale sign of a cracked head or leaking head gasket.

i plan on taking all the good parts and making a well functioning auto out of them. so the engine can be shot or whatever. it doesn't matter too much to me. i just need a solid body to handle the fuel injected fury of the ea82 engine.
guy says that the clutch is out. i just installed a new one about a week or two ago.
the car has been sitting for 3-6 months if memmory serves correct. hopefully i can get another D/R tranny out of it.
guy wants $550 obo. i'm gonna offer 350 @ theend f he month. i'll just gop from there. what's nice is the fact that i make sales for a living. i hope this guy is ready for the biggest pile of BS this side of the mason dixson.
