Sidewalk Edition

Recommended Posts

Looking at a 2008 Sidewalk.   Any red flags that anyone knows?  Going from a supercharger to a turbocharger - Interested to feel the difference.   

 

Thanks all -- Be Well

Early gen2 before the bugs where smoothed out, so check it over well for electrical gremlins. As the the N14 motor it has the usual suspects that should have been replaced (as for documentation or account for replacing): thermostat, water pump, oil housing gasket, timing chain and tensioner. Those are the big ticket items, but check for other oil leaks at the inner for example. A history of oil changes is good, the n14 is thirsty and people run them low which wears rings and other internals. If you can gt a compression test it is a good idea, might give you a preview of possible worn rings or failing head gasket.
