hi everyone. i'm new here and was hoping someone could help me with this. i just recently purchased a 1988 conquest. the lever on the underside of the steering column that allows for height adjustment for the column comes loose. i was told that to fix this i had to install a new column. there has to be an easier fix for this. any ideas would be appreciated.
Just bought a 1986 Starion Esi-R. And although the stock turbo gets this Mitsu up to speed pretty quickly I'm looking for a little more power with what I hope to be, maybe an easy swap out. For example can I run a 90's eclipse turbo in it or any of the other fine breeds that Mitsubishi has to offer. ? With possibly the same inter-cooler set up that's standard in my Starion? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hey I'm new to the Starion/Conquests and was wondering if I could get some help. I just put a new head on my Starion and I'm having a heck of a time getting the cam timed. I know where the tdc marks are on the crank shaft pulley and timing cover. isn't the pin on the cam just suppose to be on the top or the bottom? Any help would be grate!
I will admit I am a newb when it comes to this starion and also this forum but I just can't find the information I need to figure this issue out. I checked the other threads on this issue and mine is not exactly the same so I will ask for someones help who knows better than I. I have been a mechanic for over 20 years and am an ASE master in both truck & car just for quick background, but have never worked on a Starion before this though. I bought this 87 Starion turbo with a bad motor. The car came with a good used motor that the previous owner heard run but the car and motor both sat for almost 10 years. I thought my best move would be to hear the car run with the original motor first to make sure there were no hidden issues. I drained and cleaned the tank, purged the lines and got the car running but only after cranking it for about an hour or so with no spark. Eventually it just began sparking like it should but I couldn't explain why. I replaced the motor using all the original components off of the original engine because I new it was operational as I heard the old motor run (although it knocked). Now with the replacement engine installed I again have no spark at all. From memory I believe I have 12 volts to the coil but don't have any power at either terminal on the plug going to the distributor but don't know what I should see anyway. I have two distributors, two coils, and two sets of caps,rotors,and wires so I have tried swapping these parts to no success. I have a manual on the car but it is very general and non specific so I don't have scematics or troubleshooting for this ignition system. If anyone here could help me out with some detailed diagnosis or maybe have been in this same situation I would appreciate anything I can get. I appologize for the long post but I wanted all the information included so it would be available to anyone that could help. Thank you in advance.
I am considering buying an '88 starion but it does not have a motor. It has a 5 speed transmission. I assume it is a U.S. production model for what that's worth. I'm trying to figure out how hard it will be to find either an original complete starion motor, or if this car can take another engine from say an eclipse or lancer, etc. Thanks for any advice you can give.
Hi, im Juan and i bought an 87 conquest tsi, it was working good but after a while it started hasitating, and boging to the point of turnin off at every red light... now after 15 minutes of running it desides to just tun off on mE... HELP PLEASE....what should i try to fix now?
I've been wanting to build a daily driver/weekend track car (road racer, not drag) in the 300 hp/mid-to-high 12 second range for some time now; I originally looked at dsms, but was unable to find anything decent in my area for the right price, so I ended up with an '89 5.0 Mustang. It's a nice car and all (yeah, right), but I've had an open mind about acquiring a mk3 turbo supra or other rwd turbo car for a while; by chance I happened upon my "new" 87 starion at the local junkyard and bought it as a builder car for $500, and they're selling me a motor out of another starion for $120 as was negotiated into the deal. I'll have my work cut out for me for a while just getting the car tuned up and running halfway decent, but I need to know asap what it will take me to get her to >300 rwhp.
I've been looking around in what little spare time I've managed to get this weekend, and I see no shortage of high-hp starions, but everyone seems to have a different combo. I'm a little vexed that I made the mistake of thinking that this starion had a 4g63 in it -- a motor that I already knew had good aftermarket support and is capable of making well over 300 whp without breaking the bank.
So, since I'm stuck with an rg54b, what kinda "recipe" do I need to make a reliable 300-400 rwhp car? I'll have an extra motor, and once I sell my Mustang I'll have some money to throw at it, so I can take my time with the build and do it right, but I need to know if this will be something that I can afford. What I've seen gives me the impression that most of the higher hp starions and conquests are very custom -- a stark contrast from the 5.0 world, where a simple head/cam/intake/other boltons combo with a tune will get you that 300-400 hp relatively easily.
I want to go big with this car, or go with something else entirely if it's beyond me; what's a realistic figure for the $$$$ that it will take to accomplish this, and where do I start looking for information?
This car was a daily driver up till this happened 3 weeks ago. About 3 weeks ago it overheated on the highway after a radiator hose blew, and after that incident it wouldn't start, after getting a new head gasket put in I am still having some problems. The car starts now, but when I give it gas it won't hold the rpms, If I put the gaaccelerator down it jumps up, but even with the accelerator to the floor , the rpms drop back down and it wants to stall. If I don't give it asny gas it will sit there and idle at low rpms fine. It is also backfiring a little when it drops from the high rpms and I can't tell if the turbo is spooling up right but the boost gage really seems to lag behind the rpms. Is it possible I messed up the turbo when it overheated ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to get it running right before I put in a new radiator. Thanks for any help.
