FYI. Mine was throwing that code about a month ir 2 ago when I was racing along little turtle through curves against a newer Acura tl. I mean running it hard up to redline pretty much. After I got to a stop sign it started sputtering. started the cel came on. Checked and it could be multiple things. Spark plugs, ignition coil. Fuel injector, vacuum leak or valves. I knew it wasn't anything but possibly a clogged injector cuz everything else has been replaced in the last 6-9 months and I found it hard to believe it was a valve, but I do put 100+ miles daily on mine and run it rough daily, if a car can't take what I throw at it then it's not the car for me lol. Unplugged battery and threw a half a bottle of marvel mystery oil in my gas tank and all has been good since. Just saying. You should at least take a good look at it before you sell it for 1000$. Could be as simple as mine was. Only real way to check to see if it's valves is I believe a compression check or if you take it apart, if you haven't done either of those 2 things then it's hard to say if you have bad valves or not. Just saying and trying to help you out, no point in selling a car cheaper then what you paid for it, if it's a simple fix.

im so done with putting money in this car. the body and and interior is still nice (its a 2004) should I junk it, sell it as is, or fix it and try to sell it? Lord have mercy!

Exclamation Re: 2004 Cruiser needs a valve job..selling it

Welcome to the forum

Sad to see you leave the forum

You will be missed

Your contributions were invaluable

That time you put brake fluid in instead of oil was great, even though it wasn't at the time.

Was glad we could all meet you at RTTB!

What are you doing with all those trophies you won?

Oh well, sad to see you go, good luck

Yes it was a trip. Something about her brakes were squeaking and she somehow thought adding brake fluid to the oil would lubricate the brakes and stop the squeaking. It was a mess!

Hey thanks!! fuel injector cleaner solved the problem. Amazing that the dealer couldnt figure that out after running 200.00 worth of diagnostics.

The dealer doesn't make enough money on fuel injector cleaner....
