About “Achieva SC”

I got it about 9 months ago with a bad oil pump gear so i pulled the motor out and replace the pump,bearings,gaskets,rings pretty much everything in the engine is new.

So basiclly in the middle of july my car was sitting outside my house with the new engine finlly put in and some @ss broke into my car broke my window took all my cds and my system that was nice then about two mouths later i was driving home from school and my engine lock up on me and i was pissed so i got out of my car and look under the hood and there was oil every where and knew my connecting rod went throght the pan and i lost it and kick my door so i got a car with no engine, no window, and a big @ss dent but its alright becasue about two mouths ago i was in a junk yard and i found to achievas one was a achieva sc with a 3.1 v6 it had a bad engine i guess but its the same color and it has a good door and the other achieva was a 94 achieva sc quad 4 H.O. same color but the lady who owned it rolled it 3 times but the engine is fine and it only has 30,000 miles So i picked it up got the motor in it and now she runs like a champ.
