I still don't think it has anything to do with the valvetrain, but I'm not driving the car. I'd go with what Rex had to say about it. My 3.1 had to have the intake gaskets changed for something different than what has happend to you. Keep us updated.

Back head gasket

Did you say where the distributor would be? The oil pump drive is in there. Stop leak isn't a good idea. If you are not going to take the engine apart Slick 50 may at least slow the leak, it should be put in on a oil change. But if you are going to put any new parts inside the engine don't put the S...

Anything new? Lifters most of the time don't care if they are run low on oil. I'd spend the money on other things. If you change the lifters it is best to also get push rods and rockers(they have all worn into each other and may not work right with one new part). The valve tips and cam are something...

REX! Where have you been? I had hope that someone who knew would show up. I feel bad that I'm not much help. I didn't see your post till after I had posted.

The Chilton's manual has a troubleshooting guide for oil on page 3-26 and 3-27. If you don't have one or can't get one tell me and I will list what may be of use. Keep me updated.

I just don't know. This is strange. No smoke? As for the pump, my oil pump drive had to be replaced once, but I still had oil in the pan. All the warning I had was my pressure was low even after I had changed the leaking presure sender. Does your temp get high quickly?

Wow! All I can do is guess, coils going out and front and rear main seals gone. Lifters make a diesel noise when they do not get enough oil. Have you looked under the engine to see where it is coming out? If it is the main seals and there is one per side it will cost alot. I knew a girl that paid 1G...

Fuse 1 BLOWS!

If the tape doesn't stay on there is liquid tape that brushes on. Got mine at Eastwood, but did see some at Wal-mart.

Getting hot....then cooling back down

It sounds like the stat may be sticking. If you are going to put a new pump in don't forget to put water pump lube in( I didn't in my 90 and had to put a 2nd pump on). Check also your radiator tanks for cracks, the stock ones are known to split on the seam.

transmission

My 90GT lost 1st and 2nd once. Two switches had gone out, 1 to 2 and 2 to 3. But you have a THM125C and I have a HM 3T40. If you can, look under the filter for some small black boxes on the valve body. I took my car to a shop and it didn't cost all that much.

More problems... yay

Can you find out where the sound is (front,back,or side of engine). Do you have the check engine light on when it's running? Is the RPM going up and down? Is the sound a hiss or is it more like a knock?

Well, we are getting off topic and they may shut us down. It's been good talking to and helping a fellow Z28 and 90 Beretta owner. I hate to cut it off like this, PM me sometime. I'll be posting too.

That's good to hear! I miss working on rwd V8's also. I got my 90GT in 96 and just can't seem to give up on it (in the shop now for control arm bushings).

Sorry for the wrong info on the 4th gear. Must have been thinking of the old days.
