Fredmatic Posted December 29, 2016 Share Posted December 29, 2016 First post here Background: 05 LGT Ltd, Black on Black. 204k on the odometer. Neighbor had it sitting in his driveway for a couple months, (not running )struck up a conversation, and long story short, I have the car (at a salvage price). Carfax came back clean, paint has taken a beating, as to be expected since it came from CT to FL in 2010. I got the car with all of the coil packs off, and one clip broken. One CP was fried, so bought 2 new ones and a set of spark plugs, and the CP repair kit. Got everything hooked up, went to start and definitely sounds like rod slap or something in the lower part of the motor. Checked timing belt and pulley marks and it's aligned up. I already have another resto project Im working on, so option 1 is to keep the car, and replace the motor, but Id have to have someone else do the work. Option 2 is just to sell it off, in it's present state. For what I paid, it was a calculated risk, but very small financially. What to do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
