I wouldn't call it feminine though.
It's more like the truck equivalent of a manlet.
Hey I got one of those to also a 5 speed. My grandpa sold it to me for dirt cheap with only 50kish miles a few years ago and due already having a few speeding tickets I decided to keep it as its super slow with a whole 112 horse power!
Also why 8 spark plugs on a 4 cyl?
I didn't want to start a new thread for this but here it goes: I saw a Ssangyong Actyon Sports today. It was the same color as pic related but with a hardtop on the back. I think it looked kinda good, so I did some research and a dealer near me is selling a 2 months old Actyon Sports , fully loaded and with just 1200km for 24k€. I know it will depriciate more than any other pickup currently available in Europe but it's also a whole lot cheaper and I think you'll get a lot of car for your money. Sadly I couldn't find many reviews of the car and most of them were in some eastern block language. I still remember the very first Ssangyongs were using Merc engines and transmissions so mechanically, there shouldn't be much trouble, right?
Is the Ssangyong Actyon Sports any good or am I missing something here?
If you get regular maintenance it should last you a while.
My ranger has 214,000 miles on it. Nothing out of the ordinary aside from a minor oil leak. I have to add oil slightly more often then normal. About it.
From what I've read the dual spark plugs per cylinder is to increase MPG. Most common in motorcycle engines.
The engine is a fucking titan, it will last forever so whatever the reason it worked.
Apparently its supposed to make detonation more accurate and also more clean-burning
I have the same with my Merc... its fun, having to buy 12 plugs when you're also picky and only want Iridium
It was a bad attempt at competing with the small truck market as at the time, the fuel crisis was still a thing and had almost caused dodge to file chapter 11. They thought they could turn it around with the rampage, but by the time they had them being produced, the crisis had ended, which in return hurt dodge again. They are fun to drive though.
honestly their performance wasn't too bad for the time. It helps that they were less than 2,400lbs. I think the decals were merely there to seperate the 1.6l (VW rabbit engine) to the 2.2l (chrysler creation).
That was actually more displacement than a base S-10 or Ranger at the time.
I dunno, the turbo 5 speed version is pretty badass.
>implying the lima isn't one of the best 4 cylinders ever made
>bullet proof and lasts forever, 400,000+ miles is easy
>can make shitloads of power
>cheap as shit and produced forever.
There's a reason people still race and mod these motors. The fact that they came in some shit cars doesn't change the fact that they were good motors.
Hell people even throw Volvo 4V DOHC heads on them.
