My 1988 90Q (I know it is different than yours) has 140K in 7 years. The
following items have been replaced:
-- Computers (Both FI and Ignition) (30K)
-- Idle Stabilizer (Chasing running problems 30K)
-- O2 Sensor (50K)
-- Catalytic Converter (40K) (Hard running tends to melt them down)
-- Radiatior (135K)
-- Coil (50K)
-- Brakes (105K)
-- Clutch (new) and tranny rebuilt (135K)
-- Door lock lever (125K)
-- AC pieces and parts (110K)
-- Hoses and belts (twice I think)
-- Hydraulic tappets-2 of them - they still rattle when cold (130K)
Actually not to bad considering the exercise the car has gotten.
