Hi i have a question im confused i read back and forth on synthetic oil and can you use it in high mileage engines reason i ask is i just had my oil changed and my mechanic told me that vortec engines...

Best to use Full Syn in all motors-- if you don't mind
the extra price per quart

All the debate & that is all it is- has been going around
for 50 years, on synthetic oils

At 300,000 that motor is done & will use oil regardless
of what you put in it,so the answer is no,the oil has nothing
to do with it

Seems just plain silly for a professional to now after 312,000
to put in synthetic oil,sort of late & just silly,they don't make
money on an oil change they loose money anyway

Have a 92 lincoln town car, fixed an oil leak in the oil filter adapter (changed it out with a new one), no leaks now, but when car is in gear and running, knocks loudly. When I fixed the adapter leak I...

if it is knocking in the bottom end , there is nothing that can be done to save it as it is already too late
your statement that it is in gear as well as running is a bit confusing as if it is an engine problem it would be knocking in neutral as well as in gear but louder in gear and under load
however if it only happens in gear then that means that the problem is transmission or drive line related

I have a 90 crx si with a b16a vetec engine in it. I was wondering what kind of engine is in it because it is a swap. the motor number is 1207276? and i have an idleing problem and im pretty sure that its...

A B16A with no number fallowing it is a JDM engine. If it was a B16A1 for example it is a USDM engine. As for the idle problem its probably a tps sensor and if it idles really low rpms you should up the idle at the trottle body to idle at 800 rpms to be safe, To low of a idle will cause bearings to go out and throw a rod.
Lookj at the valve cover if it is a jdm you will know if it is a SIR or a SIR2, SIR has larger font for the DOHC and smaller font for the VTech The sir2 has larger font Vtech and smaller font DOHC. The SIR2 also has oil jets underside of pistons and rods to help lubricate piston rod conections.

The B16a will fit in the 86 as far as the positioning, and motor mounts go. Of course you will have to upgrade the ecu, or at least get a piggy back unit for the extra fuel to run that monster. Hope that helps. Oh yea, and I am pretty sure the tranny should fit, but you may want to check the codes/serial #'s at your local dealer.

Can get the correct timing

well time the cams. it should say up on each of the cam gear and when you have the two cam gears in the up position. there should be a dot facing each other on the cam. then on the crank shaft gear there is also a dot marking. Line that up to the arrow mark on the block located right close to the crank gear. And then have your distributor rotor placed on cylinder one. thats the one closes to the cam gears...
