2003 Buick Regal
Symptoms include:
-started studdering in idle at long lights last week
-2 days ago, lost get up and go at acceleration, studdered, and not able to get above 30mph.
-was told its misfiring, changed spark plugs. Timing is off slightly
-overheated, wouldn't turn over
-smoke coming from where oil goes into, ONLY!
- found mud in radiator, flushed it out. Haven't blown it out tho.
-idle and drives rough, studders, stalls when slowing to make turn or at a light
-recently had a oil and oil filter change, and new fuel pump put on.
I have already driven 2500 miles, what is your opinion ?
what seems to be the problem ? there is no code only not complete.
Needs: Spark plugs & wire set. Intake manifold gasket set. Valve cover gasket set. An EGR valve adaptor. Total parts and labor will be $825. Front axle and rocker panel are rusted and will not pass next inspection. Should I invest the $825? Or scrape the car? Thanks for your help.
An also the light doesn't always come on when the car is started. Sometimes when k go over a bump in the road it will make the light come on and then if k go over another bump the light will go off.
