Yep, Eric is my go-to car guy. I went ahead and bought that ’05 Element with 267,000 mi.that I’d sworn not to, wish me luck. I’ve got it down from 9 faults on the MIR to 2, bought a knock sensor to put in tomorrow for the P0325 fault, but the P0302 (cyl2 misfire) didn’t move when I swapped the coils (with new plugs), so I’m doing a compression check and bleed down, then adjusting the valves, running, and testing again tomorrow. Saying appropriate prayers and mystical incantations (not kidding) that I don’t need a valve job.
I really should get on the forum, since I’ve committed to this beast, frankly love it.
I wonder… If I need a valve job, should I rebuild the bottom, too… What’s the oil pressure, what did Eric pay for a used low mi. engine? OMG, please smog for me, I’ll never sneer at rice-burner motorcycles again, I swear!
