Title: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on March 09, 2012, 05:33:16 PM
I picked up my first 240 Saturday the 28th. Its a Black 92 Hatch with 17inch Drag rims, a J30 Diff and Ksport lowering springs at all four corners.
I was pretty happy since its my first car that i had bought with my own money. Well within 26 hours of buying the car it decided it wanted to play games and throw a rod.
My drive home from work at 4:30am sunday turned into crap as the block exploded and the I17 became the proud new owner of a piece of the block out of my car.
So now I'm in the process of taking the old busted motor and putting in a fresher KA.
I've never taken a motor out and really never worked on a car till now. So this whole process is a huge learning curve. The new motor is a mixture of a S14 KA bottom end and a S13 Ka Head.
So yeah I've been on this forum for a while and this is my intro thread lol.
One Day i will own a toyota. Now for the pics the last pic is the whole in the old block

Sucks to hear about the motor.
I had the same problem with my wifes new ride. well, not really. Hers overheated after 10miles. 24hrs after she got it.
You just cant trust anybody when buying cars these days.

Anyways, at least KA motors are cheap to come by.

Wow.  I hope you didn't pay a lot for it.

Well, the good news is that after you rebuild one motor,  you can rebuild them all... Pretty much...

I believe that the lemon law only applies to dealerships. Private party sales are an "as is" deal. Unless otherwise specified by both parties in a bill of sale.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: errin on March 12, 2012, 10:15:02 PM
lemon law of arizona does not cover just dealerships.  it covers private party sales as well.  the main dispute is not whether the seller states if it is "as is"   or with warranty.    the dispute is how the cars stated condition is.   for instance if the seller stated in an email the he would "  not hesitate to drive this car anywhere"  as it was his daily, then that statement would leave you to believe this car was not in need of any immediate maintenance and was ready to take for a drive. 

you sound surprised the engine blew so i think it is safe to say the seller was dishonest.   would gather up all exchanges of info you have and see what sort of statements the seller made.   these can be loose statements, for instance if he hands you a bunch of paperwork and says he changes the oil every 3000 and is was taken to so and so recently and they gave it a 9/10 blah blah blah.   

you main arguement is proving that the actual condition is less than stated  condition making it a lemon.     you could have a 50k dollar car that runs perfect, but if stated value was 200k saying it shits hugs, makes it a lemon if it doesnt actually shit said hugs.   

also i believe the statute on the law is in years.   i would contact the seller, basically tell him what will go down if he doesnt at least help rectify the situation.  and if he doesnt help bring the full extent of the law on his ass.  let him know that if a judge rules in your favor you are entitled to  money to make up for hardship he has caused on you.   

even if you have no proof, lets say if the deal was done all verbally, chances are he has done this a few times and has a couple previous cases against him,  or he has lots of car sales on his record without a commercial license, which is a red flag as well.  and will sway a judge in your favor.

Post by: Hackeduphachi on March 13, 2012, 12:54:47 PM
I was told that there is a 48hr law in Az. Even in (as is) private sells. So if the car has a major failure (motor ,trans, ect.) You can get your money back. As stated above it has gone past this time frame. It would be very hard to prove that its not something that you caused to happen. I would write it off as a learning experience, and build the car how you want it. There are so many options with a S13. Make a budget, pick a motor and build the car of your dreams.

Its not illegal to sell a car with out a dealer lic. Not everyone selling a car has 100k and a home or property to put up. That what getting one takes. You can transfer 4 titles a year and that's if you put the car into your name before selling it.

With that being said its not advised you take a sellers word over your best judgement. Be educated, know what problem areas to look for on a that model car. Don't make rushed decision, its good to sleep on it. Look at as many cars as possible before making a decision. Buyer beware
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: errin on March 13, 2012, 01:20:10 PM
lemon law is 2 years or 24,000 miles for new cars  or 15 days and 500 miles for used.. unless the guidelines for revealing problems or stating a shorter warranty are followed.  the guidelines just outline how you have to state it on the bill of sale.       

i wasnt trying to say that you cant resale a car without a license.   i was trying to point out that these kind of things are not usually isolated incidences and that the seller probably has a paper trail of people either filing against him, or just a bunch of car sales.   if  judge were to see anything like that it could sway the judgement in your favor.   

i think you have a case,   is it worth it is up to you.

I bought the car from a kid my age. Im just going to call it a learning a expericence and move on.
Now onto the plans for the car. Id like to go 1jz sometime the end of the year after i get a few drift events under my belt.
So i will start upgrading with coilovers im leaning toward Ksports since there local and i cant help but buy from local companies.
The interior was kinda nasty when i got it so I ripped that out when i was working on taking the motor out.
I dont have to have emissions till OCT 2013 so i can keep the car  registered and legal till then.
I don't plan on this car looking the best since its my first car build and i plan on drifting the piss out of this car so paint is kinda a eh.

I remember reading about what Errin said, they can't lie in their ads.  That's why I always keep screen captures when looking.
But you've manned up, good for you.  Good luck with the build.

Title: Re: i hate my car

Only if you do it right but i don't really care to boost this motor at all.
On another note getting all the front end suspension figured out installing my new tie rods, rack spacer, super angle knuckles, and extending my LCA. Then it's SPL arms in the rear, fix my leaking oil pan the take this bad boy on a road trip before I rip the KA out

rewind a few months back switch panel is done and car went to Efrains with a blown HG so I still couldn't drive it.
Yesterday I spent 13hrs at Rev'em Hard MotorSports and we put the whole thing back together. Installed Arp Studs cleaned up all the vacuum lines that were none essential. She fired right up and I drove home this morning. Pics when I'm not lazy

Wholly chyt! Updated finally! Glad it's running again. How do you like the turbo? Is it worth the time, money , and effort it took to turbo the ka?

I ask because I have a 240 now too! I was just gonna do the sr since I have done a few sr swaps and they make nice power. The twin cam ka is a torquey motor tho and I like it now lol.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on November 11, 2013, 01:19:01 PM
It depends on your KA
I only went with a KA because it was a fresh rebuild and had 4k miles on it.
If your motor has alot of miles on it I'd say just swap SR.
But other than that I love it. It's fast and the tourqre is ridcoulus.  If you decide on going KAT let me know and ill help you with it. It's a rather easy swap you just have to get the right parts.

Broke an axle the day after getting the car back.
Finally got to fixing it yesterday.  Will be drifting at the event at the end of January at firebird or whatever it's called now. Also bought a spray gun so I'm going to sand the car down and spray it soon.  And buy wheels 15x10 -51

Then did a photo shoot with the car.
It's super ugly and not anywhere near finished.
I'm chasing an eletrical issue with the alt not charging the battery. And it doesn't like to idle.
Gonna pull the manifold and fix the vacuum leak.

i looked. i like the fender path you have chose but not the pig nose. it looks so ugly to me for some reason. the nose that is. i actually like the car as its sits now. you should paint the rims though. they look like everyone's diamond wheels.

My theory is that you are trying to get more mileage on your tires by riding on your exhaust.

My 240 runs great 
But I'm bored with it. Gonna get all my body work finished and  paint this thing.
Then by early next year sell it and build either my Cressida or some sort of cool toyota.

So I went drifting it as fun.
I'm terrible still but eh it was fun.
Pretty happy with the car right now but I'll be improving the body work soon with paint.
Then next year I'll be throwing in 264 cams and ITB's.. It's about to go down!

I honestly want to finish the 240 the way I built it in my head. After the drift event I had a new feeling for my car. Can't let it go till I finish it how I want. More then likely I'll pull the motor after I destroy the chaisis. Kinda the plan is to just beat it to hell and just have fun.
I'll eventually own a toyota project car. Been thinking about selling the cressida. But idk what id want to replace it. Someone trade me a GTS for my x8?

The top isn't painted yet. It'll be black when it's done. I'm using a rattle can to paint. Once the primer cures then I'll sand it down. Then paint, more sanding. Then finally clear and more sanding.

Rattle can paintjobs can be clean, its all about the prep!
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on December 30, 2014, 06:50:58 PM
Yup. I've spent a lot of tjne sanding everything down between Layers.
We will see I have only spent 60$ I think on all the paint and primer and sand paper so far.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: SDSK on January 04, 2015, 11:00:44 AM
If prep is good then yes rattlecan can look really nice however the only real difference is its not as durable and also does not stay nice for long as compared to automotive paint. Hence the price but for me that's awesome because once it starts to fade guess what? New color! Lol
Title: Re: i hate my car

Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on January 15, 2015, 09:10:51 PM
So the last few weeks has sucked. We installed a oil gauge and found my motor reading 0 oil pressure. Yet it hasn't told any knock knock jokes quite yet. We are swapping oil pumps to see if that fixes my issue. If it does then I'll drive on this KA till it blows up. Also tubing my front end.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on January 28, 2015, 09:42:38 PM
So bearings are scored. The last shop to touch my motor over torqued the caps on the connecting rods and crank... That led to no oil running through the bearings and causing them to become all scored up. Yet not a single one spun or blew up But I'm doing a full or rebuild on the motor now.
Might as well start fresh with the motor because I'm nervous for what else they fudged up. Hopefully have the car back running by March so I can break the motor in and go drifting.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: FATagent on April 08, 2015, 09:18:40 PM
So it's now April and the motor is still in pieces. But alas all is not lost. Rotating assembly is coming back from the machine shop after being zero balcanced. By next week hopefully I'll have a running 240 again. I went with a full build that can handle 600hp. I'll never seen that much but I'd like atleast 400 when all said and done.
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: Wangchung_Tonight on April 08, 2015, 10:59:59 PM
So, is this going to be n/a or boosted when its back together?
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: SDSK on April 09, 2015, 08:25:28 AM
400hp on a n/a 240? Unless it's a v8 I'm guessing forced induction
Title: Re: i hate my car

Honestly don't know if I'm going to use the ITBS.
I can buy Mega squirt for 800 to run with itbs.
Or buy my buddies turbo setup for 900 with NISTUNE and everything I need to make 350whp.
Or keep it stock for a bit and longnose my s12 first....
Title: Re: i hate my car
Post by: twincharger on April 10, 2015, 09:35:27 AM

Post by: FATagent on May 19, 2016, 08:40:32 AM
Ruined my old 240 shell being too low.
Destroyed the subframe forward mounting studs... Found a clean donor shell to swap to and I'm currently in the middle of doing all that. This time around this car will be more focused on comfort and track ability. Much different then before where I wanted to be the lowest around... It's cool but damn is it a pain. Needed to find some wheels for the 240. Need some 15x8's or 9's with a nice offset to fit on the new shell.
