O hello there

Hello, I’m Jake, 24, Mechanic for Mitsubishi and Kia, and have just recently bought a 2002 Cuore EJ-DE. Got it for cheap due to blown headgasket, thought of it as a good project to turn into a daily. Got it started and running nicely yesterday and now just need to sort out a bunch of service items and some idle issues and she’ll be sweet.


Welcome. The previous owner evidently drove the vehicle too hard on a cold engine. Bi-metallic engines don’t appreciate such behavior, since the co-efficient of expansion for aluminium is greater than that of cast iron.
Other than that, your car looks flawless, from here


Welcome :slight_smile:

welcome Jeoffry. Looks like a nice little L7 you picked up there mate. Nice score.
