Hello again everyone. I drive a 1987 325es, with roughly 286-287,000 miles on it. The car was taken care of kinda shitty so it seems. Ok interior and body, but the motor is really rough and all that, mostly do to my huge exhaust leak.
What I am wondering is, I have 287k miles on my car, engine seems to have seen a lack of consideration in its life. I have been reading up on the hotsoak, and some people have also mentioned that they change there oil and vacuum lines after they do the hotsoak. I have not yet done the hotsoak, seems kinda obvious that my car might need it. Problem being that I just changed my oil about a month ago with expensive mobile 1 synthetic oil ($6 something a quart) and cannot afford to change it again. Would it matter if I did not change my oil after this. Also Is it important to change the vacuum lines after the hotsoak.
Any suggestions and opinions on the information above plus the Hotsoak is encouraged. I need all the opinions and information possible, please give feedback. Thank you
