BEWARE by Ed on 05/08/2003. Trim: 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva SC Series II, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Fuel economy, and performance
Overall review: Purchased used with 42k miles, immediately the heater had a bad odor. Seems the a/c doesn't drain properly leading to heater core mole. At 65k miles the water pump started to leak. Condensed repair procedurre Remove exhaust pipe and exhaust manifold. Remove timing case cover and tensioner Remove water pump. On a good day it should take 7+ hours, if you run into problems with the exhaust it will take another good day or two. Haven't gotten an estimate yet, but figure the dealer will want something in the range of a thousand. 25% the value of this piece of junk.
