I drove a c900 today, noticed some things. Has 178k

- Transmission whines (5spd)
- Ticking sound from valve cover
- Rear hatch will not open
- On a hot start, the idle jumps from 500 to 1500 rpm on its own

Anything serious?

probably nothing. these cars are bulletproof. almost no problems ever especially once they get to be close to 25 years old.*




the whine is probably pinion whine. so in short, it needs a gearbox. has it been sitting for awhile? might just be noisy lifters. could be chain noise though.
