i made an appt to have my 4runner looked at on monday..... check engine light (code 26) is coming on and off from time to time.... in addition, it is running rough at idle (like a v8 hot rod).....
got off the phone with my mechanic and he thinks it might be a burnt valve..... o2 sensor was recently replaced and headgaskets were done 1.5 years ago.... hes a good friend of mine .... and recommends that if it is burnt valve, to not waste anymore money on it and get something else....
my questions are:
- what are the symptoms of a burnt valve?
- what's the fix? ........ cost?
- what recommendations do you all have, if it is a burnt valve, fix or sell?
i would love to get a new car, but i don't want a car payment(esp. when im trying to get into homebuying)
i value your guyes opinions so thanks.....
