Yeah mine was a V6. I forgot it's still a 4 banger in the Escort.
Yeah. For a 4 cyl though, I think the SPI CVH has a pretty good sound...especially if you mod the intake. I plan on doing a 3.8L TB swap soon and I hope it makes it sound even better. What do you guys think? Good sound or "just another 4 banger?"
The 3.8l Tb is a bit over kill... Apparently WRC, 4 bangers, have the same size, 44mm, TB as the 2.0 SPI yet make upwards of 600HP. The stock TB isnt a restriction, adding a huge TB is only going to drop flow velocity.
CCRM (AC), timing belt, motor mounts, dents, paint, bad headlight wiring on the passenger side. Maybe a trans rebuild...
It will make a hell of a parts car if I get another G3, Its nall going to boil down to money...
I honestly never really gave the sound much thought beyond wondering if I had an exhaust leak.
Ah. Sounds like my POS.
BTW who all here has a '97 and can help me remember where the two hoses coming off the evap canister (under the CCRM) go? They run side by side for the most part and go somewhere in the direction of the firewall.
I'm not near the wagon right now, but drop me a line tomorrow before lunch and I'll look and/or take pics, etc...
Awesome thanks! I'm not ready to drop the motor in yet, but I did get the ear welded. Gotta get this posh wedding behind me first.
As I recall from my 97 one goes to the bottom of the throttle body and the other goes to the EVAP line coming from the gas tank. There is also a sensor and solenoid valve I think on the line going to the throttle body.
I lied. Motor is back in.
That sounds right. And I have the solenoid line laying here.
I'm too dumb for schematics to help. :-/
Then put down your tools, you are too dumb to work on a car.
Its a really simple schematic, the part shapes are even well represented.
EFCA= nipple on bottom of throttle body.
Thermistor = Purge flow sensor
EVAP purge valve = EVAP purge valve
Canister = Canister
V REST = I don't know, never saw it on my car. Its probably a hose coupler that some sort of flow restrictor in it.
I've never been able to work off schematics for some reason. My brain just never seems to translate the drawing to the real thing.
I tried working for Ingersoll-Rand (now Volvo) building those double drum rollers used for paving and it was a no go. What the book showed me didn't help me see what the machine required.
I was responsible for running the hydraulic lines and I just didn't "get" it.
All it is is :component: :hose: :component: Don't question it, just do it. Make it look as neat or as sloppy as you want.
I replaced mine.
I was replacing motor mounts, and broke one of the rear crossmember studs on the front subframe. I was actually looking at replacing it in a couple of months anyways with something newer and with fewer miles. I ended up in an '07 Focus hatchback.
I tried to do my mounts a while back. The drivers side stud snapped and I gave up. I soaked everything with WD AND PB Blaster and nothing else would budge.
Mine were well lubricated with transmission fluid from the leak. Hah
Not that it mattered for the rear tranny mount since I had to replace it.
Flushed brake fluid, replaced pads (ceramic) and rotors. The old pads were almost down to the worn indicator so it's good I got them done. Also lubed the caliper pins and cleaned the shit out of the whole area. My car can stop safely now. I can slam on the brakes at 60 at stop in 4 seconds flat. With my old brakes you could slam on the brakes and you would wonder if you were ever going to actually stop. Next up is replacing the bushings on my shifter, and installing my short throw
On mine, everything came apart fine. It was after I put everything back together and was torquing everything down when I broke the stud.
