Not to mention, if youve seen an 89 overheat...its not pretty. I imagine youd lose alot less co0lant with an earlier style puke tank. Though Ive never seen the setup.
Never had that problem though. :wink:

i wanna do that soooooo bad. but i live in a city with a bunch of filthy rich asshats, and 2 of the surrounding cities same thing. so i would make it about 20ft out of my driveway until i got pulled over. Shoot... the ticket's probably less than buying a bunch of parts that don't fix your problem. ...

Is the coolant ending up in the oil, or just disappearing? Anything under the redline is considered "ok" for temp readings (as long as it's working properly.) i had an early 86 where the gauge would climb all the way to the top before the fans kicked on... it always worried me... but that's just how...

You can get at the dizzy hold down bolt w/a 17mm wrench through the front of the engine... or a shallow 17mm socket on a long extension between the fuel rail, and alternator. Don't touch the alt. wire with your extension. :oops:

I'd say your wastegate itself (not the actuator) is sticking.
Pull the actuator arm off, and see if it swings freely.

both of those seems like more work that just the 3 bolts to remove the pwr steering pump. i might consider that though. how often does the tfi have to be replaced on these cars? that might make my decision easier on what route i take. btw, thanx for the info For me, that's easier than messing with ...

i have the tfi but i havent put it in yet. i need to get a pulley remover so i can take off the pwr steering pump to gain access to fit my socket in there. unless theres a better way.

It's a 5.5mm deep for sure.
They do make a few special styles for the specific job. I have a thumb wheel one that's my favorite.
