Interesting. I don't shy away from high-mileage cars, but I've never bought anything with over 200K. And I'd be really wary of an LX/LD with that kind of mileage, especially an older unit.A few yes.
I think you should try to get the compression check done. You could be beating yourself up over a broken valve spring.I'm tempted to just unplug the damn MDS harness, I know this will throw a light, but it shouldn't try to use it then, but I might as well wait and get it disabled in the tune.
I just want to know what it is that's wrong so I can fix it or get it fixed and enjoy my car again.
I don't know what this means.they are telling me its an internal problem and not the valve or spring. they said replacing both heads isnt worth it for 200k miles and swapping the engine would be better but at least 8k for parts and labor.
