looking for any advice/tips.
i've been offered, for free, a '98 accent x3 (auto tranny). hasn't been
driven for half a year, doesn't start, the last mechanic (supposedly a
'good guy') dropped in some sort of engine and the darn thing still
didn't start up...
it actually 'looks' ok... no rust on the body, not banged up at all
really. getting some mechanics to look it over now, to give me an
estimate to see how much it will cost just to get it to start.
i'm in no rush to get it legally on the road, and thinking of dropping
in a new engine, take my time having it fixed up...
i've been told that other then the stock engine for the x3, a 1.8 or
2.0 beta engine from a tiburon will do fine as well - any ideas on
this, guys? any other engine suggestions? i'm not looking for any crazy
horsepower or speed - just something decent, reliable, and hopefully
affordable. any input would be appreciated.
thanks in advance.
