I did try to start at partail throttle, earlier today.
I thought about the IAC, but it definitely was getting good fuel.
I could see very good fuel spray, plus, like I said in my earlier posts, it has excellent spark.
I did verify that the EGR is free and smooth.
I thought it should run too.A friend of mine said a V6, yes, and would run crappy. Not the 2.5.
However, I once had a '87 2.5 with a hole in the center of #3 piston, big enough to stick your finger through. It ran rough, but it ran.
They are good engines. I put a new piston and gaskets in it, and it ran like a champ.
-After some valve adjustment washers!
I love them. No timing chain, just timing gears.
This has been well-cared-for. I cannot believe this happened, but it is at 190,000 miles.
I have heard of a few people getting over 300,000 miles on these.
I guess I change the head gasket & associated gasket set.
