'94 SL bleeds oil
Greetings fellow community members! I'm still getting acquainted with learning how to use this site but I do enjoy reading through posts that remind me of similar experiences I've had with my 3000GT (I believe we can call relate). I'm typing this post from my mobile and wish I had a photo of my car to share with all of you.
To the biscuit and bones: I am the third owner of this car. It only has <144k miles on the body and the motor had supposedly been 'rebuilt' at 100k. No rust and most things are functional. About a year ago, I discovered that it has a leak and i discovered oil splatters at the rear bumper... occasionally I refilled oil and water, even replaced valve seal/O-rings and got rid of the smoke but yet I still had oil shooting out from the muffler. One morning I was leaving for work. Got in the car. Try to start it up. Only to have it crank and turn but no firing... later that day I checked around to find that
the front SPARK PLUGS HAVE BEEN DRENCHED IN OIL.
I haven't yet checked for the rear cam/spark plugs because I'm enrolled in school and I don't have much the leisure time or leisure money. With every thing mentioned, would you guys know what would be recommended? Would I need a long block or short block? Keep my current motor and run compression? Should I keep shelling out money and keep buying new spark plugs every time I want to go for a drive?
The car has been collecting dust for a while and I can sense my dad is going to surprise me by donating the 3000GT to the local scrap yard... I really want to get this car back on the road again and even possibly drive it to car meets/shows.
Personally, I do not have much resources or money so I thought I'd turn to a community that may be able to help me out.
If you would kindly, mind sharing some feedback with me?
