1990 Skylark w/ Noisy 2.5L Tech4 Engine
By James Robert on
Vehicle1990 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis little car is a great A-to-B car or family car. The Tech 4 2.5l 4- cylinder is really noisy, but will run forever. I made the mistake of thinking it was valves tapping or an engine knock. But the two different machincs I took it to both said similar remarks, "The engine has a plasic timing gear that makes a lot of noise, even brand new, but it is nothing to worry about. Just keep up on regular maintence and she'll run forever." I have only heard of imports that reliable, not a Buick. But this car has shown me GM has and can make a reliable 4-cylinder car that last. At 129k miles it'll prbably go another 200k.
Best FeaturesRelaiblility and comfort.
Worst FeaturesMore horsepower overall.
