Re: 2001 engine in a 1994?
Thanks for all the great reply's, seems that the 2001 might be too much trouble. If I need to depending on what the mechanic says I might have to either rebuild my engine,
(last time I drove it ... going to the happiest place on earth (d-land) it was smoking alot of white smoke... no overheat or fluctuation in oil pressure that I noticed.... kinda stuttery but never died... kinda funny though because the car behind me had to slow down alot in the parking structure because it was like a giant smoke screen in the d-land parking structure... decided to park go to d-land and enjoy the day and tow it home later that night.)
If anyone might off hand have any ideas of problems... tow truck guy was saying it might be a head gasket... my mechanic says there's oil in the 4th cylinder but not a miata specialist so he needs to do further investigation and about 3 months ago I did new hoses water pump and oilchange and timing belt. All stock parts.
Is it better to rebuild my 90k engine (automatic) or purchase a 80k same year engine 1994 for $750. He would install for $500. Reason I brought up the 2001 wasnt for more hp but I saw one online still in the crate brand new for 1800.
Not sure which way to go with it. need help... Gonna take it to Salazar Mazda tomorrow to have him look at it ... supposedly a mazda specialist. in Los Angeles. anyone with a better mechanic they would send it to would be great.
There goes my suspension money dang it... missed the tech day in LA also cause of this lol
Thanks Again everyone
