Stock HP of the 200q20v is 217.  
  Many of us have switched to Fumoto drain valves to avoid  plug thread  problems.
  There is a relay that keeps the windows/sunroof powered after you turn off the key until you open a door.  
  Cooling fan should go on whenever you turn the climate control to Auto, which engages the A/C.
  You should get a Bentley if you're going to do any services yourself.  If not, make sure the mechanic has one.

  Hello All,

Just reciently sold my '93 Urs4 and bought a '91 200q20v. Pearl white and platnum sport interior. Drivers seat torn.(need one. I'll list in marketplace.)

This car is a bit lighter than the Urs4. A bit quicker also. 250 hp, correct?

The cars been sitting for +-2yrs. I literally had to grind the head off the drain plug as the flange was welded to the pan. I broke 2 easyouts before the flange was completely gone. Once the flange was gone the plug came out easy. Thanks goodness for Napa's lifetime warranteed tools. 
1 bent rim(also need), 3 seperated tires. Odo reads 89k. Head gasket leak to cooling system. New (now) windshield. Aftermarket pos cd player. All speakers still powered and sound good. Cruise doesn't work, nor the abs.

Just a few q's.
Any fix for the bouncy speedo? Seems the computer thinks the car won't go faster than 15 mph.

The headlights inner lens; bulb is 5 watts? Just a parking light? I've got a fog light switch, but seems no fog lights, front or rear.

Power seems to always be on in the interior. Windows and sunroof always powered. Abbynormal? Interior lights go out normally.

Also cooling fan goes on when the climate control system is going. Turn off the climate control and the cooling fan goes off. Put it on auto when the car is warming up and when the heater kicks in the cooling fan starts. Seems quirkey.
