Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Eagle Talon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
Over 2 years I have been trying to figure out what to do about my 1994 Eagle Talon. It has a 4 cylinder dual overhead cam engine that overheated 2 or 3 times when the water pump quit. Because of the position of the pump being able to hit 3 different timing marks when replacing the belts was required. Apparantly one timing mark was off by 6 notches. It only turns over and over now. I have left it a local shop for over a year only to be told they couldn't find another motor for it. Is another motor my only option? Since the aluminum heads are possibly warped b/c of overheating and the rods are probably bent b/c of the timing mark mishap is it possible to find the parts needed to rebuild the existing motor? What parts would I need exactly? Since it has set now for probably 2 years how can I tell if it would be feasible to even try to fix it or is it time for the junkyard.
