Folks, I'm curious if anyone else along the way has experienced what I'm getting. Here it is: - Completely stock, had 30K major service 5 years and 6,000 miles ago, 1988 3.2 Mondial Cab that is VERY, VERY cold-blooded (as in, backfires, stalls and can't even be driven up the driveway until it has been running for at least five solid minutes) when first started (not joking). - When warmed-up, however, it pulls and runs like a champ, although it stills smells a little rich (makes your eyes burn when standing at the rear of the car). When I first got the car, it was so bad that I was afraid that it was only running on six cylinders. It seems to have gotten a little better, but not much at all. I have run three bottles of Techron and four tanks of fresh premium gas through it. It doesn't smoke at any point, even under hard acceleration when warmed up, and it doesn't burn any oil. Sorry to "take, take, take" information at this point, but I'm afraid that I still don't know enough to be of much help here yet. (Incidently, thanks a million for the oil change and cooling system bleeding instructions a little while back. Worked like a charm!) Thanks a ton, in advance, Mike p.s. Time for timing belt replacement, since the major service was 5 years ago, even though it only has 6,000 miles on them?
