Which car would you rather own between a 1969-70 Mercury Marquis or a 1980-81 Chevrolet Citation? I would definitely own the 1969-70 Mercury Marquis due to better performance and reliability, plus they're more stylish and sophisticated, the only thing what I like about the Citation is that they're economical cars and they're avilable with the V6 engines. Additional Details - Unfortunately the 1980-81 Chevrolet Citation is one of the most recalled cars of all time and they went through alot of breakdowns, I knew some people who has owned Citations from 1980-81 and they've had problems with those cars.

I would prefer the 1969-70 Mercury Marquis cause they came out during the golden era of the automotive industry while the Citations came out during the worst era of the automotive industry, I think the cars from 1975 to about 1985 were the worst years of the automovit industry.

The check engine light is flash, does that mean that the motor is gone?

No. A flashing Check Engine light does not mean that the engine is gone. What this means is that you have a problem with your engine management system that will cause rapid damage to the catalytic converter if it is not corrected immediately. You most likely have a severe misfire condition and/or fuel mixture problem. You need to have your engine controller scanned as soon as possible to find the cause of the problem and get it corrected. Severe damage will result if this is not done right away.

Hello trimaineiman: My name is Roger and I will help you. A couple of things you should do is replace the water pump while you have the timing belt off. Should the pump fail later it will do severe engine damage to the engines valves. Next This engine is not a free wheeling engine. Should you put the belt on and the valve timing oi not correct.

How to change a timing belt on a 2000 galant

Changing a timing belt is a job that is better left to the professionals. On some engines if it is not done properly severe engine damage can result. Damage such as bent valves, broken pistons etc. Seriously if you are here on Fixya asking about timing belt replacement you probably do not have the mechanical expertise to properly do the job. In addition on some vehicles special tools are required for disassembly and assembly.

Hope this helps

How do I remove the bolt on the pulley to replace timing belt on a 95 honda accord

This is a repair best left to the experts. Severe engine damage will occur if the repair is done incorrectly. The Chilton's manual is fine for someone who has a good baseline of knowledge to begin with. But if you do not know what you are doing, it does not provide enough information. Remember this is an INTERFERENCE engine. Do this repair incorrectly, and when you attempt to start the engine, you will more likely than not, cause internal engine damage. If it were a non-interference engine, I would say, give it a try and if you make a mistake, the engine would just not start, but no damage will be done. Not the case with this engine. Your decision.

This indicates that the engine has a misfire severe enough to damage the catalytic converter. Most common cause of this problem on Mitsubishis is the plugs and wires. Replace them.
