Talked to my 'service advisor' about the reliability of the V6. He has
been pretty straight in the past, so I think he's a reliable source.
He said that the V6 was basically a reliable engine, with the only
trouble areas being oil leaks due to expansion/contraction between the
cast iron block/aluminum head, and the front engine housing (?). Also
carbon can build on the valves (not a new problem for performance
He said these problems we corrected by engine design revisions in late
1994, with 1995 and newer V6's being corrected, (So of course we have a
1993 100CS, 36K miles, no problems yet).
Let me know if you have data to support/dispute this. (Why am I asking;
I already know I'll get your opinion!) :^}
