never mind. my nephew started working on this and I took it over. I thought I'd better check things out. I pulled the #2 plug while someone cranked the car. no compression. he finally told me he turned the key to try & bring timing marks around. he did not know to remove plugs.
I removed the valve cover. the valves on the intake side are not touching the cam. I count 5 I can lift. (not touching the cam. either collapsed or my vote is bent. the exhaust side seem ok.
I'm gonna have to pull the head. I may be nit picking, but, if I have the mach shop do the intake and test compression, I see no need to do the exhaust side. they look ok. (all touching the cam). the car only has about 82k miles on it. or just redo all the valves.
I've done a 32 valve car before but never pulled a head off an aveo.
options? if I decide to fix/sell this motor, are there other motors that fit aveos that are not eTech engines? what else fits this car? this is a 1.6l.
what do you think? what could I sell an 80k mile engine reworked for?
