I'm looking to get my first car back. when I was 14 in March of 2016 my dad's friend gave me a blue 1990 Eclipse GST that he bought brand new in 1989. I had it until my mother made me sell it in October 2017. Last I saw it it was around the Raleigh area and the timing belt had gone. It had...
to fill y'all in on how it failed, the ac pulley bearing was worn to the point that the pulley wobbled and cut into the timing belt cover and pushed the cover into the timing belt shredding the right half but the belts in one piece.
Deleting the balancer does create a lot more vibration but it also made my oil pressure rise by a good bit. If you want a comfortable street car I wouldn't recommend it, but it does leave you one less thing to worry about.
I have a 1990 GS-T with 220k miles that had been sitting for a while before I obtained it, should I use oil flush in an attempt to get gunk out or leave it be to avoid causing leaks? Also if yes what flush do you recommend?
