Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 2.2 in my 94 Cavalier that is used for dirt oval track racing. Motor was said to have been rebuilt right before I bought the car, which seems to be the case as the motor has run flawlessly. Last time out I ran the car way too hard on a track bigger than what I should have been racing. The motor ran at way too high of RPMs at full throttle for about three laps in a row, at that point the RPMs started dropping and I thought the motor was cooked. I shut it down, the oil pressure still read 30# and the water temperature was about 220. Now, the engine will start but it runs rough and I can tell it is hurt. Where would you start of fixing this problem? What would be most likely to be the first parts to give out at sustained high RPMs? Is this a no-brainer that the engine will have to come out and be torn apart? Or, might I get lucky and find an easier fix such as valvetrain, etc?
Most of the time when this happends it has to do with valve train like broken valve spring, or bent valve , or even a bent push rod or colapes lifter, or rocker arm. At any rate i think your problem is in the valve train.
