Hi all. New to DSM cars. Just bought a 90 Laser RS turbo. Pretty good shape for its age, hard starting, runs decent but burns oil and leaks everywhere. 160k miles. Engine is tired and won’t pass smog again. I need a trustworthy shop in the Sacramento area that knows these motors to do a good rebuild with some upgrades. Goal is a fun around town car that will pass smog. Don’t mind spending money to get this car where I want it since I plan on keeping it. TIA for your time and advice.

Thank you, I will. I’m good for a couple of years, though how it passed in August is a mystery. I could use a shop that works on these cars. I’m finding 1990 models are somewhat unique and no one wants to deal with OBD1 cars. Right now the check engine light throwing a code for the TPS. I was able to source a used one but it’s still throwing the same code. Car is running much better once it starts (cold starts are awful), so I’m not sure if it’s an adjustment issue or if the idle position switch is a problem even though it idles fine. I’m good with take apart put together, but adjustments and the like not so much.
