Questions about 86 4kcs
Now that my finals are almost over I plan on spending a good part of my
x-mas break fixing the little things that appear to be "wrong" with
Katherine (my 864kcs). The following is a list of the projects I would
like to tackle only after getting some advice from anybody who can help:
--Oil temp guage: no matter how I drive, where I drive or how much I
drive, the needle barely makes it past the 60c line. Does anybody know
the normal oil temperature for my vehicle? (I use 20w50 here in San Fran)
--Oil pressure guage: While operating at normal speed the needle always
remainings well past 5 bar (the highest value on the guage). While in
neutral and at a stop it drops down to about 3.5-3.8. Is this normal? I'm
also having trouble with my oil pressure light/buzzer on dash and I
assume there must be a correlation.
Something tells me that the guages themselves are fine but a relay or
switch somewhere is bad.
--trunk shocks: The shocks that work the trunk are completely shot. At
first I thought this would be an easy project but now I am beginning to
wonder about it. What am I looking at for a pair of these shocks and is
the replacement simple?
Thanks in advance for the help.
