I had a 1989 Le Baron (which you probably didn't know is the predecessor to the sebring, and I also now have a 1995 sebring myself) anywho about my Le Baron, it was nice, 2.2 Turbo 4 cylinder the works, anyway right one day I was going for a drive with one of my friends and he asked me what my car could do, so I floor it (I'm already going 30, but the tires spin anyway :-p) next thing I know is that I hear this loud thump against the back of my fire wall, I was thinking holy crap that was my engine jerking back, (those small vertical twin cams are know to jerk like that) I looked at it and it checked out fine.
Well a few months later I noticed that my tranny was clicking, simple fix, the flywhell was hitting my inspection plate, so I cut the rubbing section off, well then it starts to rub again, and I cut another peice off, but it just keeps getting worse, then about another months later I start to see this WHITE SMOKE ur talking about, only when I take off, what had happened it the exaust manifold was seperating from the block, long story short, that day when I floored it, I broke my engine mount, snapped it in half, and then that's all she wrote, a few days later I was lucky to get it to the junk yard where it sits today, sob story of a person who at the time was broke and couldn't take care of the only classic he might ever own ;-) lol
p.S. Ya I know my spelling sucks :-p
