Thanks so much for the advise Fisherman! If this works you saved me a butt load and I will be back to donate some of it. Thanks for the article I have found out it supposedly covered v6 solara's until Aug 2002. Mine was built in october! So I dont know what my options would be. 2 last questions, first can you reccomend a good engine flush? I am also told magic mystery oil works well but not sure its a flush. And second you mentioned after a couple of oil changes check to see if sludge was still there. What if it is? Start the process over and do it again? Again THANK YOU![/Quote: 08ba7a1388]
also doing a flush might clogg up the oil screen, in turn motor will lock up, but its still worth a try, putting a quart of trans fluid in it let it run a little(1/2 hr) do not drive it, change oil, do this a few times, sorry to say the dealer sees this more often than aftermarket places, and parts may cost a little more but get longer life outa them[/quote: 08ba7a1388]
NEW TWIST. If you read this entire thread something doesnt feel right. When I told them I could'nt afford what they were offering. They said I was an honest customer & they wanted to help me. NOW dealer is willing to replace with NEW engine (Everything under the hood except for heads, so I'm told) PLUS turn rotors and all new brake pads for $3000. My question is this. WHY?
