By James Robert on


1990 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan


This 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

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
