Today I spotted 2 SHO’s at the Toledo, OH ABC auto auction. One was a pacific green 96 with 152k miles and had a BAD CAM tick, beautiful car. (VIN#1FALP54N2TA244183) bid up to 400 bucks didn’t sell, wanted 3k for it. The other one is a 1997 with 65,000! Miles. It is a Ebony Satin with tan leather, it started hard, but ran smooth, no noises from engine. Had a check engine light, and wouldn’t idle. Drove it around the lot, man it feels SO much better than my 97 with 172k miles. So far, I am finding more and more GenIII’s at the auctions with cam failures or ticking engines. I am going to document them, so someone can do something constructive with the information.
I saw in the local Auto Trader last week This 1999 Green SHO VIN# 1FAFP54N3XA153572 w/ 105k miles was listed with engine problems. I called the Gentleman about it and he said it was a cam failure. Please add it to the list.
Also I just purchased Cam failure #622 1996 pacific green/ tan SHO at a local auction tonight. Price was 1700 bucks, it is still running smooth, so I am going to have the cams welded and sell it. Has 152k miles and is absolutely beautiful!
If there are any interested parties please contact me, has the CD changer, SHO floor mats and everything works. Great car!
