Every year I buy a "disposable" car to get me through the New England winters. Last year it was a 1978 Chevette I bought off of Ebay. Well this year I found a perfect I mean perfect showroom new always garaged no rust 1989 Corolla, auto, working A/C with 42,000 original one owner miles on Craigslist. I bought the car for $1200.
Because the car had sat for over a year my first stop was to get a complete tune up and new timing belt. After picking the car up at the garage I noticed a slight jingliing sound? Kind of like loose nuts shaking around in a empty coffee can. I brought it back to the mechanic (local gas station garage) and he reset the timing. He told me because he has to clean out the carburator there might be some carbon build up still in the engine and his suggestion was to drive the hell out of it and see if it gets better. Well I ran a bottle of Redline Fuel System Cleaner thru the car and I'm still getting that sound. Any suggestions?
Also I was able to acquire a factory dash clock on Ebay and Im looking for ideas as to how to get access to the dash panel to install the clock.
