Hi guys and girls...I'm trying to help a kid out with getting her Talon
running again...she's sunk every last dollar she has into the thing and
really her shortest way out from here is a rebuilt engine...it's a 96,
Non-Turbo, ESI...high miles are okay, I can spend between $450 and $700
depending on the actual engine we find...is this doable? I'm trying to do
this in secret, I don't want her to know I'm paying for it...I've not had
much luck with the "search engines" on the net...
just get her a different car...sorry to say but most stuff from DSM (eagle talon, plymouth lazer, mitsubishi eclipse) is unreliable. you can get her a different car for 700 dollars, it will be more reliable trust me
way to answer the question dipshit.
yes an engine can be had for that price but it will be high miles.
I provided a better solution to the problem.:thumbs:
It may be better:roll: but suppose that girl loves her talon. I've had problem with my gsx but thats the territory of any high mileage car. A car will run as good as you take care of it in my opinion. Perform the regular maintenance and everything should run. Imo every car company will have a batch of bad cars. To answer the posters question I've seen some decent mileage(95k-110k) 420a motors going for about $500. Check out some dsm sites and forums and someone may have a good site to direct you to.
I'd rather not.
That advice wasnt directed to you, I know perfectly well you wouldnt follow a good idea even if it was 6 inches up your ass.
So I don't have to trust you then?
Nope...not at all...id never try to help you anyway
I'm sure he's crushed.
Sounds interesting....If a tad painful.
you got any good ideas Cliffy? I'll try it out :mrgreen:
