Question about 1992 Plymouth Laser

3 Answers

This guy is selling a 92 Plymouth Laser RS Turbo, $1900.00

I asked him how many kms and his response was the following..."It has 252xxx, but i resently ran into a motor problem, one of the lifters is messed up and it needs to be replaced(makes the motor knock)ill give it to you for 1000,
but if you pay 1200 ill through in another head that just needs to be swapped in, car still runs, and can be driven, the bottom end is fine."
Is he being straight up? Is the car still worth what he wants? Just your opinion is enough... The car looks mint other than mechanical...

What engine are we talking here, just to be sure? Sounds to me like your inheriting his headaches. Especially a turbo, just more equipment to fail, and big dollars to fix. Go to ( enter all info you have on vehicle, and what items you think may need to be replaced, now & in near future,and watch it add up to a $3000 car real quick. Better off to spend $3000 on a better car, and have a 30 day warranty & no problems right from the start. Hate to burst your bubble, but,"been there, done that". Had good luck once doing that, and it was only because I knew exactly what was wrong, caught seller in a lie, (never tell them I'm a mechanic) bought it for 1/3 asking price, and fixed it myself for about $200, and it ran like a charm for years. If he thinks it's an easy fix, why didn't he do it, or have someone do it, and charge a little more for it? Remember, if you pay $1000, and have to put $2000 into it to get it running properly, you still only have a $1000-$1500 car at best. Shop around for a 1 owner with records to prove oil changes etc. were done regularly, it's a good sign vehicle was taken care of. With economy the way it is right now, and people getting laid off etc, it's a perfect time to pick-up that second car they have but don't need, or can't afford anymore.

If the motor is knocking and he says its the lifters then replacing the head could work or maybe a valve ajustment. if its not knocking from valves it could have bigger problems and if aren't able to fix it your self then its not worth buying cause it could cost u alot.

92 plymouth laser rs how do u recharge the ac. cant find it under the hood or they dont make the stuff for it anymore

First you have to buy a conversion kit at most any auto parts store.
The kit has the fittings to convert the system to R134 freon.
Problem is, the system needs to be empty of the old R12 which is harmful to the air. And if the system is already empty, the leak would need to be fixed first.

This could be any number of things unfortunatley. I'd start with fuel pressure. Check the pressure. It could possibly be your fuel pressure regulator.

92 plymouth laser rs turbo when i come off clutch in first gear car shakes or stutters problem comin out of first

Your driving a '94 laser... thats definately a large portion of your problem. I would take it to a salvage yard, part it out, or sell it for scrap. Then take that money, invest in a huffy bicycle and the only problems you should ever encounter is the tires going flat or the seat being a pain in your rear parts.
